One injury was reported, though it wasn't immediately clear how serious, following the Nov. 16 crash on the northbound highway in Rochelle Park.

The rear passenger side tire of a Volvo sedan that collided with the rig was sheared off.

Route 17 North was closed at Woodland Avenue so the wreckage could be cleared and borough police could investigate.
