Chaos On New Jersey Highways

Posted: Updated:
Fort Lee, New Jersey (My9NJ) - Hour-long traffic in the Garden State is slowing down morning commuters, causing frustration and rage. Recently, there has been massive back-up on the roads by the Holland Tunnel and George Washington Bridge where two fatalities took place two days in a row.

Last week, there was a three car collision on the turnpike by exit 14C causing major delays. This accident had one fatality and three people were injured. The day after, another fatality occurred when two trucks collided on the upper-level of the George Washington Bridge.

This mayhem on the roads followed closely behind Tracy Morgan’s accident on the New Jersey Turnpike last week. His publicist released a statement saying that Morgan is doing well and his doctors are optimistic about his recovery.

However, now there is a new controversy surrounding Morgan’s accident. Krizya Gutierrez, the daughter of Ardie Fuquas, another passenger injured in the car crash, is angry with TMZ for airing an exclusive video of the accident. In the video, you allegedly see an unconscious body being pulled out of the Mercedes limousine and moved into an ambulance. With this footage going viral, celebrities requested for TMZ to take down the video but they still have not done so.

This past week alone has been a wild week full of traffic on the New Jersey Turnpike and all over the Garden State.

    15-foot snake in Lake Hopatcong

    The lake is called Lake Hopatcong but some would call it Lake "Hopat-conda"! Recently, there was a fifteen-foot anaconda spotted in the lake by local resident Tony Colantonio. According to Colantonio, the snake was actually harassing him while he was swimming in the lake so he proceeded to sprint out with no harm done."It was straight across, right where the boat is but a little further back. And I just got out of the water and just took off like a bandit!" He said.

    Boaters in Lake Hopatcong in New Jersey are keeping an eye out for an unwanted visitor lurking underwater: a 14- or 15-foot-ong snake, possibly a green anaconda. Several people have seen the reptile, which has probably holed up in a drain pipe. Reptile specialists are also searching the lake for signs of the snake. So far no more sightings have been reported.
