Ridgewood NJ, An adult female driver of a Ford Escape lost control of her vehicle after making a right turn and crashed head on into an unoccupied marked Ridgewood police cruiser shortly after 7:30 PM on Sunday, 10/25.
There were no injuries in the crash, which occurred in front of 26 South Broad Street, Ridgewood, but both vehicles sustained heavy front end damage and had to be removed from the scene by separate flatbed tow trucks. Ridgewood FD personnel were called to contain a crash related fluid leak.
Witnesses to the crash reported that the Escape was traveling at a high rate of speed and had just passed another vehicle moments before the crash occurred, but no summonses were issued at the scene. The driver and her passenger were observed sitting at an outdoor cafe as the crash was being investigated. The police car was parked at the location because officers were investigating the sudden death of a resident in a nearby apartment building.
