A collision between a truck and a bus has resulted in a fire on the New Jersey Turnpike.

All three northbound lanes of the New Jersey Turnpike were closed near mile marker 47 in Mansfield Township due to an accident that caused a fire on the road. The accident scene was about 10 miles south of Trenton.

State Police Sgt. Jay Dungee says a tractor-trailer and a camper collided Tuesday afternoon, causing a fire that firefighters are still working to put out.

One person was injured and may have a broken arm, but no life-threatening injuries were reported.
