BERGEN COUNTY, NJ – Two Bergen County men were entrapped by live wires after crashing a sedan into a utility pole in Northvale on Sunday night.
According to Daily Voice, a Westwood man was behind the wheel of a 2019 Acura sedan and traveling eastbound on Paris Avenue. At about 10 p.m. near the Rockleigh border, the vehicle veered from the road and struck a utility pole.
The pole shattered, and live wires were scattered across the sedan. The 22-year-old driver and his 22-year-old Old Tappan passenger were safely extricated by firefighters.
The driver was taken to an area hospital without serious injury and the passenger declined any medical attention.
The power company cleared the wires and set about repairs.
An investigation is ongoing. No one has been cited at this time.
