The adult female driver of a black colored 4-door compact was transported by Ridgewood EMS ambulance to The Valley Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. An unmarked Paramus PD unit was the first on the scene; plain clothes officers provided shelter for the victim until Ridgewood units arrived.
