Ramsey NJ, a Jeep SUV veered off the roadway on Route 17 north near Lake Street in Ramsey and struck a tree leaving two people dead. The crash snarled rush-hour traffic in the area for hours on Tuesday as investigators worked to discern what caused the fatal collision.

Ramsey police chief, Brian Lyman, identified the two victims as 96-year-old Ethel Toth of Upper Saddle River, who was seated in the Jeep’s front passenger seat and died upon impact, and a 77-year-old Rhode Island man, George Sadue, who was driving.

First responders pulled Sadue from the wreckage but were unable to save the man, who died a short time later, Lyman said Tuesday.

The collision occurred at about 2:30 p.m. and led police to close northbound Route 17 redirecting traffic  onto Franklin Turnpike, causing delays for hours until the road was reopened at 6:30 p.m.

As of Tuesday afternoon, investigators were still working to determine what caused the vehicle to drive off the road,Chief Lyman said.
