Three cars crashed earlier this morning on the Garden State Parkway which closed exit 11 in Middle Township.

Shore News Today reports the accident was caused by a dump truck that lost its load on the bridge which caused dredging spoils to spill on the roadway. According to Middle Township Police, the road became extremely slick resulting in the three car accident.

The accidents were spread out on the southbound side of the Parkway and only one minor injury was reported.
