The box truck, driven by 40-year-old Leonard Doss of Magnolia, Del., swerved into a barricade, Jones said. He was declared dead at the scene.
The dump truck broke apart, and part of the vehicle remained in the center lane. A truck carrying 8,000 gallons of kerosene swerved to miss it and overturned, Jones said.
That driver, 32-year-old William Barcene, of Vineland, was flown to Cooper University Hospital in Camden.
All three northbound lanes remained closed until just after 9 a.m. Friday as workers fixed a guard rail and cleaned up spilled kerosene. By midday, one lane remained closed.
