It was a tragic morning following a crash that happened Friday in Ridgefield Park, New Jersey. Furthermore, a tractor-trailer crashed into the side of a Jeep driven by Thomas Andrews of Keyport. Initially, Andrews lost control of his vehicle, and slammed into a median in the northbound lanes. Then, the semi driver failed to stop in time, and subsequently slammed into Andrews's vehicle. Although it was indicated that the tractor-trailer driver attempted to stop in time to avoid hitting the Jeep, it is unclear why he was unable to do so.
Sadly, the driver of the semi was pronounced dead at the scene, and therefore his identity is not being immediately released. Andrews suffered head injures, and was listed in stable condition at a local hospital following the crash. Police are investigating the cause of the initial crash, and why the Jeep caused the accident in the first place. One northbound lane was closed for a short time following the investigation, and crews cleared the wreckage.
