When she pulled out into southbound Route 15 traffic, a tractor trailer struck her vehicle, according to the report. The trailer was hauling wine, which spilled as a result of the crash.

The multi-vehicle accident still has all lanes closed in both directions as of 11 a.m., according to the state Department of Transportation, and will remain closed until Hazmat and reconstruction crews can complete their work.

Police estimate the road will reopen around noon.

Correction: An earlier version of this article incorrectly attributed Coroner Pam Gay as identifying a mother and daughter dead from this crash. Gay had been referring to a Thursday night crash in Washington Township.
