Boyd A. Loving
Ridgewood NJ, A Honda Passport and Toyota Camry collided at the intersection of South Van Dien Avenue and Grove Street early Monday afternoon resulting in injuries to the occupants of both vehicles. The driver of the Camry was trapped in her vehicle until members of the Ridgewood Fire Department freed her by using the “Jaws of Life” to remove the driver’s side door. She was transported to The Valley Hospital in Ridgewood by members of the Ridgewood Volunteer Ambulance Corps; the other injured party refused medical aid at the scene.
Both vehicles were removed from the scene by flatbed tow truck. Westbound traffic on Grove Street and northbound traffic on South Van Dien Avenue was detoured to facilitate work by emergency personnel and the tow truck operator. Ridgewood PD officers under the command of Lt. Forest Lyons investigated the accident and provided traffic control.
