The accident occurred on River Road, near the entrance to the eastbound lanes of New Jersey Route 4. It was first reported on September 10, shortly after 4:30 p.m.
According to police, a 52-year-old male driver with the Bergenfield Volunteer Ambulance Corps was operating an ambulance northbound on the road when the young woman suddenly tried to change lanes while driving her Mercedes C43.
The Ambulance Corps driver said he swerved in an attempt to avoid a crash, but the passenger side of the rig’s cab was still hit by the Mercedes.
