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.

  1. Who ran the stop sign and who was speeding?

  2. Which one was on her cell phone?

    1. As a witness of the accident, I can tell you that no one was on their cellphone, nor was anyone speeding. Don’t assume next time. There are plenty of reasons why people get into accidents.

  3. He was on the phone?

  4. Or how about it was just an accident?? Ya know, that happens to.

  5. Thank you for your comment #3. No one was on a cell phone, no one was speeding. Both were injured and treated at Valley. Both were very fortunate. This was an unfortunate accident. Although one of the driver’s was at fault the blessing is that they are both recovering to full health. Let’s pose positive comments.
