A small New Jersey plane crashed on Route 287 North between Exits 33 and 35 in Morris County, New Jersey at about 10 a.m., according to reports.

Reports say there may be up to three deaths.

Shona Sternberg of Hillsborough, New Jersey told NJ.com the plane came from the west and smacked down on the highway. Sternberg also said she did not hear any noise but saw an explosion as soon as the plane made impact.

There was a lot of fire and big black smoke, she said. I could smell burning, burnt rubber. You see something happening, you know it's going to crash and you can't do anything.

Sternberg was driving north on 287 to Madison, New Jersey, when she called from the scene of the crash. She said the plane looked like it was in trouble before it even crashed.

Something was breaking off the plane as it was coming down. It was coming down fast. It looked like the right wing was breaking off.

According to the New Jersey State Police Twitter feed, traffic is being diverted in both directions, which means that drivers should expect delays.
