The driver of a United State Postal Service truck escaped with minor injuries after the vehicle crashed off the roadway, causing the hours-long closure of a stretch of Route 306.

The incident occurred at approximately 4:30 a.m. Tuesday, April 16 near Old Pomona Road in the Village of Wesley Hills, Ramapo Police said.

The truck swerved off the road and struck several trees, causing some to fall into the roadway, according to police.

As a result, Route 306 between Pomona Road and Old Pomona Road was closed in both directions throughout the morning until the vehicle was removed from the wooded area and the roadway cleared.
