LAWRENCE TWP., N.J. -

A crash involving a car and a tractor-trailer in Mercer County killed two people and left another one in the hospital, police say.

The crash occurred just before 1:30 a.m. Thursday on the U.S. Route 1 ramp onto Interstate 295 North in Lawrence Township.

The right shoulder and entrance ramps were closed in that area until about 6:57 a.m.

FOX 29's Kacie McDonnell has a look at traffic, and Steve Keeley is reporting live from the scene this morning.

FOX 29's Steve Keeley says that the tractor trailer was stopped on the side of the road as the driver caught some sleep, a common practice among truck drivers driving long hours. The car with passengers rear-ended this tractor trailer.

Police say that the crash was so bad that they, at first, couldn't even identify what kind of car it was.

    Video games may be pure fantasy, but a violent action-adventure game called "Watch Dogs" has ignited a very real debate in one South Jersey community. Watch Dog allows players to adopt the persona of a James Bond-like computer hacker, chasing an evil mastermind. People say it's chock-full of foul language, sex and violence, features dark and foreboding backdrops. The latest version, which is due out this fall may be set in Camden.
