A large truck rolled over and blocked the exit ramp from the southbound Garden State Parkway to southbound Route 17 southbound in Paramus during the post-July 4th morning rush.

The driver got out under his own steam before responders arrived and was taken to Hackensack University Medical Center with injuries that weren't considered life-threatening.

It was unclear whether summonses would be issued, given the truck size. 

Trucks with a gross weight over 10,000 pounds are prohibited from the Parkway north of Exit 105. Violators face up to 30 days in jail, a fine of up to $500 or both.

Paramus police, firefighters and EMS assisted State Police from the Bloomfield barracks at the scene.
