UPDATE: Route 9W remained closed in Englewood Cliffs for nearly 14 hours Sunday after a vehicle slammed into and split a utility pole.

Wires were strung across Sylvan Avenue north of Charlotte Place after the pole topped onto the road in the mid-morning crash on the road's southbound side.

The driver, a 20-year old Cliffside Park man, complained of pain, but he and his apparently uninjured 19-year-old male passenger from Cresskill both declined medical attention at the scene, borough police Detective Lt. Ronald Waldt said.

The vehicle was towed, the lieutenant said.

Sylvan Avenue was finally reopened shortly after 11 p.m., Waldt said.

Responders included a PSE&G crew, borough firefighters who cleaned up a fuel spill, Fort Lee police who assisted with traffic control and the New Jersey Department of Transportation.
