A Lyndhurst woman on her way to work was killed when her truck slammed into a tree early Saturday, authorities said.
The 40-year-old victim was pronounced dead at the scene after her Chevy Tahoe struck the tree off the northbound lane across from an industrial park on Chubb Avenue near Route 3 around 7:15 a.m., Detective Sgt. Vincent Auteri said.
Although the investigation was in its early stages, speed appeared to be a factor, Auteri said.
The limit on that stretch is 25 miles an hour.
Auteri thanked township firefighters and the Bergen County Sheriff's Bureau of Criminal Identification, which collected evidence.
