MAHWAH, N.J. -- A worker was trapped in the back of a utility vehicle and had to be extricated after a crash that temporarily closed northbound Route 17 in Mahwah Thursday afternoon.

There was no immediate word on injuries after the three-vehicle collision at a highway work site just before 3:30 p.m.

A loaded passenger van and a four-door sedan were also involved.

Van occupants found warmth in the lobby of a nearby office building.

Traffic quickly backed up into Ramsey.

All lanes were eventually reopened within an hour.
