Troopers seek two SUV drivers who boxed in a trucker prior to physical assault


New Jersey State Police (NJSP) are asking for public help in locating drivers involved in an assault incident this week.

On Thursday, NJSP announced that they’re asking for public help with an assault investigation involving two SUV drivers and a truck driver.

The incident occurred around 8:45 p.m. on Wednesday, January 12, in the outer roadway of the southbound lanes of the New Jersey Turnpike near mile marker 96.2 in Carteret Borough, Middlesex County.

Troopers say that following a road rage incident, the drivers of a white SUV and a grey SUV “boxed in the tractor trailer in the right lane.”

“The two suspects and the tractor trailer driver then got out of their vehicles and engaged in a physical altercation in the right lane. After the altercation, the two suspects ran back to their vehicles and fled the scene before troopers arrived on scene,” NJSP said in a news release.

Police did not provide information on whether the truck driver was injured.

Anyone who witnessed the assault or the events leading up to it is asked to contact Detective Mike Silvestre of Cranbury Station Detective Bureau at 609-860-9000 ext. 4423.

NJSP shared images from dash cam video to help identify the suspects in the SUVs.
