A long commute from the Shore

    It looks like it’ll be a long, tough drive home for folks leaving the Wildwoods on Memorial Day.

    Route 47 was closed in both directions at Garrison Road after a one-car crash, Middle Township Police told NBC10, a NewsWorks content partner.

    The crash happened around 9:45 a.m. when a rolled over and took down some wires, cops said.

    As of 2:30 p.m. the road remained closed as crews continued to fix wires that were taken down when the car hit the utility pole, police said.
