BLOOMSBURY, NJ – Seven people were injured in a chain-reaction collision on I-78 in Hunterdon County on Monday afternoon.
According to Lehigh Valley Live, the incident occurred at about 4:35 p.m. near the Border with Warren County.
Investors say a 2019 Kenworth semi-truck collided with the rear of a Mazda CX-5. The Mazda veered off the roadway and struck a guardrail, knocking one of its wheels off, which hit a nearby Kia Sorrento.
Following the initial crash, the Kenworth continued down the freeway before colliding with a Toyota Camry. The impact sent the Toyota into a 2007 Freightliner semi-truck.
The Kenworth, still unable to stop, struck a 2015 Freightliner box truck and a guardrail before coming to a rest.
In total, five adults and two children were hospitalized with various injuries sustained in the wreck. No updates on their conditions are available at this time.
