RAMAPO (WABC) -- Crews are still working to get a truck out of the Ramapo River hours after it fell off the Ramapo Bridge.

Police said a tractor-trailer lost control on Interstate 287 in New Jersey Wednesday night, and went off the bridge into a river below.

The truck lost two tanks, one filled with cereal, the other filled with Gatorade.

Officials say there is now a large fuel spill in the river. A HazMat crew headed to the scene.

Two northbound lanes of interstate 287 are still shut down.

The condition of the driver is unclear.
