One person was taken to the hospital after police say a box truck drove off the Garden State Parkway Friday afternoon.
State Police say the driver of the truck was driving erratically through the Southbound lanes in the area of the Port Republic just before it veered off the road around 2:00 Friday afternoon. The truck was wedged between trees, making it impossible for the driver to exit the vehicle, according to authorities, who were able to free the man about 20 minutes later.
Police say the driver was taken to the hospital with injuries to his head and hand, which are not believed to life-threatening.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
