The jack "may not have been placed in the strongest locations to hold the weight of the car," borough Police Chief Michael Powderley said after the 58-year-old resident was injured on Erie Avenue shortly after 4 p.m. Sunday, March 19.
He was taken to Hackensack University Medical Center for treatment and released the same day, the chief said.
"Lucky guy," he said.
Midland Park police and firefighters responded along with the Midland Park Ambulance Corps and Wyckoff police, who assisted with traffic.
