FAIR LAWN, N.J. (WABC) -- A truck in New Jersey jumped a divider Tuesday morning.

At 8 a.m., a loaded Mack dump truck was hauling stone to Englewood on Route 208 South. The driver swerved to avoid stopped traffic, and the truck clipped a box truck, then mounted the divider.

There were no injuries and the box truck had minor damage.

The Fair Lawn Fire Department responded for a diesel fuel leak.

Route 208 was down to one lane in both directions awaiting Department of Transportation repairs.
