Two Cars Fall Off Automobile Carry Truck After Hitting Parkway Overpass

Traffic tied up for an hour at Route 37, Parkway

An automobile-carry truck traveling under the Garden State Parkway overpass on Route 37 lost two of its cars when they made contact with the bridge and fell off the truck, according to Toms River police.

The incident wreaked havoc with traffic this afternoon at one of the busiest areas of Toms River. Traffic was tied up for about one hour, according to Police Chief Michael Mastronardy.

The truck, which was traveling first westbound on Route 37, drove under the parkway then turned around after a stop and went under the parkway eastbound, according to Mastronardy. That is when the two vehicles on the truck made contact with the bridge.

Police did not say where the truck turned around. 

There were no injuries.

No further information was available.

Apk would have done just as good as job if not better then any other company in toms river. Apk would have also done what they are told to do by local authorities. Apk also charges directly off local ordinances.
