MOUNT LAUREL - A tow-truck driver was struck Friday morning as he was loading a disabled vehicle onto his flatbed along the shoulder of Interstate 295, police said.

The accident, reported at 8:21 a.m., occurred when a Ford E-350 box truck traveling in the right lane of northbound I-295 entered the shoulder, striking the driver and tow truck, said Trooper Alejandro Goez of the New Jersey State Police.

The victim suffered "serious injuries and was taken by ambulance" to Cooper University Hospital in Camden, Goez said.

The right lane of northbound I-295 in the area of the crash was closed during and after the morning rush hour as police investigated the accident.

The Ford truck driver stayed at the scene of the accident, said Goez, who noted the investigation is ongoing.
