Teaneck Turnpike single-car crash site tough for responders to reach

ONLY ON CVP: A car hit a New Jersey Turnpike guardrail in Teaneck several times last night before it came to rest facing the wrong way, blocking two lanes and backing up traffic for miles.

A tow truck was needed to move the vehicle before Teaneck firefighters and Volunteer Ambulance Corps workers could get to it because of the location — at milepost 119.1 — and the backup. The process took nearly a half-hour, responders at the scene said.

The driver was taken to Holy Name Medical Center with injuries that responders said didn’t appear life-threatening.
