EWING, N.J. (AP) - Officials say a woman's body was found on a car near the site of an explosion in a New Jersey housing development that also injured seven workers.
Lt. Ron Lunetta said officials are unable to identify the victim. He says authorities will await an autopsy for positive identification and cause of death. Officials don't know whether the victim lived at the development.
Police say the blast happened Tuesday after a gas line was damaged by contractors who were digging in the area. At least 10 town homes were destroyed in the Trenton suburb of Ewing and 45 others damaged.
