Rt 46 Closed today July 24 in Townsbury.

Rt 46 was closed this afternoon at Townsbury, NJ. There was a detour to Pequest Road. This usually happens when power lines fall or there is a traffic accident.


It was a bad one. A vehicle packed with fireworks ignited burning the driver over 85% of his body. He was flown out. State police had the road closed for 4 hours while they investigated.

Looks like our one "reporter" who mentioned a parked car and fireworks is a tad bit off based upon the official story as reported by the State Police.

That's interesting considering I was there. If you have learned anything from 2020, it's not to believe anything from the media. The car was traveling west when it struck and bounced off of the guardrail coming to rest within the westbound lane 1/4 mile up the road. The question was did the firework ignition cause the crash or did they ignite afterwards. That guy was in bad shape, chances are morristown transferred him to a burn unit.
