Ridgewood NJ, A female passenger riding in the back seat of a 4-door Mercury sedan that crashed into a utility pole at the intersection of Linwood and Jeffer Avenues in Ridgewood on Monday afternoon was transported to The Valley Hospital by ambulance for treatment.  The incident occurred just after 12:30 PM and closed Linwood Avenue in both directions from Paramus Road to Jeffer Avenue for 90 minutes.  The Mercury was removed by a flatbed tow truck.  The victims injuries were reported to be non-life threatening; the driver was not injured.  Ridgewood PD, FD, and EMS responded.  A PSE&G worker stabilized the utility pole after the vehicle was removed.  There were no utility outages associated with the crash.
