EXCLUSIVE: Grove Street in Ridgewood was closed between Stevens and South Van Dien avenues this morning after a Pennsylvania driver fell asleep at the wheel and his vehicle slammed into a utility pole.

The driver was uninjured in the crash, just before 6:45 a.m., but the vehicle sustained heavy damage and had to be towed.

Electricity was cut to two area homes in the area as a result.

PSE&G estimated that Grove Street would remain closed until at least about 6 p.m. due to the extensive amount of work required to replace the pole and related services.
