BERGEN COUNTY, NJ – A tow truck got caught on a cement median barrier after crashing with a garbage truck in Fair Lawn on Thursday morning.
According to Daily Voice, the tow truck was westbound on Broadway when the accident happened near Route 4/280 at about 10:15 p.m. A car cut off the driver of the City-Wide Towing flatbed truck. The flatbed then got caught on the back of an Interstate Waste Services garbage truck and turned sideways. Finally, the tow truck slammed into the concrete barrier in the median and cement went flying.
An eastbound car got hit by the flying debris.
The 52-year-old Hawthorne resident who was driving the tow truck and the 57-year-old Fair Lawn man both were complaining of pain after the accident. However, they refused to be taken to the hospital.
Broadway was closed while a fuel spill was cleaned up and the barrier was repaired.
