The 2000 Ford F650 truck operated by a 39-year-old Cliffside Park man became disabled and was struck soon after by Miller's 2018 Chevrolet Trax compact SUV crossover, Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia M. Valdes and Wayne Police Chief Jack McNiff said in a joint announcement.

The driver wasn't injured, they said.

No charges were filed or summonses immediately issued, they said, adding that an investigation was continuing.
