YOU SAW IT HERE FIRST: Four people were taken to local hospitals — one of them a 1-year-old boy — after a pedestrian crossing signal was toppled in a two-car crash in Fair Lawn this morning.
None of the injuries was considered life-threatening, authorities said.
A 2000 Toyota Camry was headed east on Broadaway when it was struck by a 2014 Nissan Sentra headed south on Plaza Road around 10:45 a.m., Sgt. Brian Metzler told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .
Three people in the Camry — two women, ages 28 and 53, and the boy, all from Essex County — were taken to St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center in Paterson, Metzler said.
A 67-year-old passenger in the Sentra, which plowed into bushes outside a Columbia Bank branch, was taken to The Valley Hospital in Ridgewood.
No summonses were immediately issued, Metzler said. An investigation was continuing, he said.
Fair Lawn police, firefighters and EMTs responded.
Broadway eastbound was closed at Plaza Road, and westbound traffic had rubbernecking delays.
Both vehicles removed by flatbed tow trucks.
