A Route 208 overpass was none the worse for wear after a container of mostly recycled computer and electronic parts smacked into it and toppled over Wednesday morning.

A wrecker was towing the roll-off container, which hit the Maple Avenue bridge on the northbound highway in Fair Lawn around 10 a.m.

The crash also pierced the fuel tank, creating a diesel spill attended to by Fair Lawn firefighters.

The driver got out OK and the bridge didn't appear seriously damaged. An inspector was called as a precaution.

Glen Rock police, the Fair Lawn Rescue Squad and a state DOT crew were among the responders.

The rig from Atlantis Carting of Rochelle Park.
