A motorist was hospitalized after her SUV was rear-ended Monday afternoon on Route 17 in Hackensack.

She and the female driver of the Ford Focus that hit her were guided to the shoulder of the southbound highway below South Summit Avenue by Walter Rogers, an EMT with the Rutherford First-Aid Ambulance Corps, and a passing tow truck driver shortly after 1 p.m.

The Ford driver declined attention, but the SUV operator complained of neck and back pain and dizziness, Rogers said.

He said he waited with her until a Bergen County sheriff's officer and Hackensack firefighters arrived.
