The collision occurred near mile marker 17.4, near Gibbs Lane, on February 23 at about 11:15 p.m.

According to New Jersey State Police and the Allamuchy Fire Department, multiple police vehicles had their emergency lights activated in the left and center lanes to block off part of I-80 for a crash response. At one point, a driver in a rotator truck that was towing a refrigerated box truck failed to move over, hitting the cruisers and an Allamcuhy-Green First Aid Squad ambulance.

Authorities said the troopers were not in their vehicles at the time and avoided major injuries, but an EMT inside the affected ambulance suffered a minor injury.

The driver of the tow truck, who was not reported hurt, received a summons for careless driving.

An investigation remains underway.
