Woman seen yelling in truck on New Jersey highway found safe

A bloodied woman who was spotted screaming for help inside the cab of a big rig on a New Jersey highway Wednesday was found safe by police who are now investigating the incident.

South Brunswick Police announced Thursday evening that they have found the woman in question as well as the truck driver in Woodbridge and said the two know each other.

A witness had spotted the woman, who appeared to be bleeding from the face and yelling for help from the cab of a white tractor-trailer parked on the side of Route 130 a day earlier. She tried to jump out of the cab, but was pulled back in by the driver who then sped off down Route 130.

The alarming report sparked a massive, multi-agency search effort by the South Brunswick PD and federal and state law enforcement.

Police said the incident was not a stranger abduction as many had first speculated, NBC4 reported. The pair were familiar with one another and were found together. Both were brought in for police questioning.

The woman got home safe but had suffered injuries — to what extent is unknown, according to the outlet.
