PHOTOS: A dump truck hauling stone to Englewood ended up on a divider on southbound Route 208 in Fair Lawn this morning after the driver swerved to avoid stopped traffic, police said.

No injuries were reported after the fully loaded Mack dump truck, owned by Phillips Trucking of Hawthorne, clipped a box truck and ended up on the divider just after 8 a.m, Sgt. Brian Metzler said.

Fair Lawn Heavy Rescue cleaned up a diesel fuel leak. Borough firefighters responded, as well.

Route 208 was down to one lane in both directions for an undetermined amount of time awaiting New Jersey Department of Transportation repairs.
