Only one (1) southbound travel lane was open to traffic as crews worked to contain a crash related fluid spill and clear the roadway of wreckage & debris. 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. Ridgewood PD, FD, and EMS personnel responded to the incident.
