Paramus – Driver Hospitalized after Van Strikes Tree
A van struck a tree last Monday October 21st, leaving the driver hospitalized with injuries.
Paramus police responded to a call reporting a crash that happened around early Monday afternoon in 796 Paramus Road. When police arrived at the scene, they saw a van with massive front-end damage after it struck a tree. Witnesses say that the driver was driving under the speed limit when the driver suddenly lost control of the vehicle. There was an effort to regain control of the vehicle after the car left the roadway, but the car ultimately struck a tree.
Paramus EMS who responded at the scene examined the driver who complained of chest pains. The driver was then taken to The Valley Hospital in Ridgewood for further examination and treatment. There was also a wheelchair-bound passenger the driver was transporting, who thankfully was not injured in the crash.
The road was closed for an hour or so and was opened up after a flatbed tow truck removed the van.
We understand how scary an accident can be, and empathize with the driver. We hope the driver recovers well from this incident. We urge drivers to be more cautious on the road as road conditions during the colder seasons can be more dangerous, increasing the risk of an accident occurring. Roads during these seasons can be more slippery due to rain and snow. Visibility may also be reduced when snow starts falling. Making sure your vehicle has the necessary preparations for the colder seasons can help you avoid accidents on the road, and keep you and your family safe.
