Investigators say a man driving a white construction van rear ended a tractor trailer just before 6:15 a.m. Monday on I-95 near the Fletcher Avenue overpass in Fort Lee.
The driver of the van was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the tractor trailer was not hurt.
Two inbound Interstate 95 express lanes were closed for the investigation, which lasted through the morning commute.
More than one hour delays were reported well into the morning as Port Authority Police worked to clear the scene.
