Mahwah NJ, A tractor and attached flatbed trailer rolled over on the Interstate Route 287 “flyover” in Mahwah Wednesday morning, 04/25. The trailer’s load of wooden pallets spilled off onto the “flyover” during the incident.

A “flyover ramp” is an overpass is a bridge, road, railway or similar structure that crosses over another road or railway. An overpass and underpass together form a grade separation. Stack interchanges are made up of many overpasses.

Mahwah Police, Mahwah Fire department, and NJSP Troop B personnel responded to the scene along with NJDOT Emergency Response units. No word on injuries to the tractor driver, nor if there was a passenger in the vehicle. A heavy duty tow truck righted the vehicles before they were removed from the scene. The “flyover” was closed for an extended period while tow truck and NJDOT Emergency Response workers cleaned up the mess.
