A 10-vehicle crash on the New Jersey Turnpike has killed five people and injured several others.

Turnpike Authority spokesman Joe Orlando says it appears nine cars and a tractor-trailer were involved in Saturday afternoon's fiery crash in the turnpike's southbound lanes in Mount Laurel, considered a Philadelphia suburb.

Orlando says all those killed were in one car, which burst into flames.

The crash has caused major traffic delays in the area and a diversion of southbound traffic on the turnpike, one of the nation's most heavily trafficked highways.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
