Route 539 Collision, Lacey

LACEY – A dump truck crash Wednesday afternoon shut down Route 539 in both directions from Route 72 in Barnegat to Harry Wright Boulevard in Manchester, according to Lacey police.

The road was reopened about 4:30 p.m., according to a text from the Ocean County Sheriff’s Department.

“The single vehicle crash involved a large fully loaded dump truck that left the roadway, struck a utility police, and overturned,” Flynn wrote. “The crash caused the contents of the dump truck to spill across the roadway, and caused the power lines to fall to the ground.”
