ELMWOOD PARK, N.J. -- A dump truck slammed into the divider on westbound Route 80 in Elmwood Park early Thursday, losing its front wheels, sending debris into oncoming traffic and jamming the morning commute.

Two other vehicles were involved in the 6:30 a.m. crash near Exit 61, which left those involved with minor injuries, State Police said.
