UPDATE: Firefighters, EMS crews and police were called to two separate, serious crashes in Ocean County shortly before 4 p.m. Friday, authorities said.

A fatal crash on Interstate-195 at 3:45 p.m. was being investigated by New Jersey state troopers. That crash, involving an overturned tractor-trailer, was at mile-marker 21 near Six Flags Great Adventure amusement park, Jackson Township police said on Facebook. Eastbound lanes were closed between Exits 21 and 22, police said.

After a second serious motor vehicle accident in Jackson Township, police warned motorists to avoid Monmouth Road at Anderson Road near the Outlets.

A medivac helicopter was called just before 4 p.m. to the scene of that second collision involving a truck on County Road 539 and Anderson Road near Burnt Tavern Road, police said. The medical center chopper was expected to land at Great Adventure, weather-permitting, according to unconfirmed reports. 

At least one person was being taken by EMS to Jersey Shore Medical Center in Neptune City.
