NEW JERSEY (PIX11) – A traffic nightmare unraveled in New Jersey Friday morning after a tractor trailer overturned on Route 80.

The tractor was transporting lumber and ended up spilling the load across the highway in Teaneck just before 6 a.m.

AIR11 was over the scene as emergency crews were called in to clean up the mess.

Some debris even found its way off the ramp to the New Jersey Turnpike.

Officials closed off eastbound lanes of Route 80 as clean-up got underway.
