A fully loaded garbage truck tipped over on a Route 17 exit ramp late Wednesday morning.

The driver was hospitalized with back and neck injuries after climbing from the rig, which rolled onto its side on the ramp from southbound Route 17 onto eastbound Linwood Avenue in Ridgewood by the Stop & Shop at the Paramus border shortly after 11 a.m.

Ridgewood police, firefighters and EMS were joined by Paramus police.

A heavy duty wrecker righted and removed the truck and a DPW crew cleaned up the mess.

The ramp was reopened shortly after 2 p.m.
