NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Some rail commuters are facing delays following a fiery tanker crash in New Jersey’s largest city.


The tanker burst into flames after colliding with a car on McCarter Highway adjacent to Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor rail line in Newark at about 1:45 a.m. Thursday. That caused problems for Amtrak’s signals and overhead wires.

Amtrak service is running with minor delays.

New Jersey Transit spokesman John Durso Jr. says Raritan Valley Line service faces delays up to an hour. Northeast Corridor and North Jersey Coast Line trains are operating with delays of up to 30 minutes.

All westbound trains along the Northeast Corridor and North Jersey Coast Line between Newark Airport and Rahway have resumed service.

Police are investigating the crash.
