A car carrier and a dump truck both toppled over on Route 287 in Oakland around noontime Friday, closing several lanes and causing major delays well into the afternoon.
Five heavy-duty wreckers were called to clear the roadway after the northbound rig hauling SUVs tipped over the divider.
The carrier split in two, with one section landing on its side against the divider, dumping one of the SUVs on the other side of the median.
The other half ended up on its side, as well, in the right lane.
A dump truck that tried to avoid the wreck tipped onto a railing in the right lane.
There was no immediate word on possible injuries.
A Bergen County Hazardous Materials Unit was requested to clear up a fuel spill.
