A Land Rover was allegedly going more than 100 miles an hour when it slammed into the Mack MR6 truck at the Huyler Street overpass at mile marker 66.2 in South Hackensack shortly after 4:30 a.m. Feb. 27, responders said.
The SUV was demolished, and the garbage truck was knocked through a guard rail, a chain-link fence and clear off the highway, they said.
The Land Rover driver was rushed in custody to the trauma unit at Hackensack University Medical Center along with his female passenger, responders said. Both were reported in stable condition.
The dump truck driver wasn't injured, New Jersey State Police Sgt. Philip Curry said.
Three lanes were closed for the cleanup and NJSP investigation.
