Three people were injured, two seriously, in a multi-vehicle crash Saturday morning on Route 17.
Detectives were investigating the possibility that one of the drivers may have been under the influence of drugs after they found a crack pipe in her car.
Firefighters had to extricate victims shortly after 8:30 a.m. crash on the highway’s southbound side in front of Starbucks in Ridgewood.
The wreckage and large debris field left only one lane passable. All lanes were reopened around 10:30 a.m.
Ridgewood police and EMS also responded, as did an ambulance from The Valley Hospital in Ridgewood, among others.
