MONROE TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) — A bus and a tractor-trailer have collided on the New Jersey Turnpike, injuring about a dozen people.

Turnpike Authority Spokesman Tom Feeney says the crash occurred shortly after noon in the southbound lanes in Monroe Township.

Feeney says preliminary reports show about a dozen people were hurt, with most of the injuries believed to be minor. But at least one person has been critically injured, and two others sustained serious injuries.

Major traffic delays are being reported due to the crash.
