RIDGEWOOD, N.J. — A driver of a Toyota SUV was uninjured when his vehicle left the roadway and went onto the sidewalk, halving a utility pole in Ridgewood Tuesday.

A traffic control sign at the intersection of Linwood and Walthery Avenues was also toppled as a result of the crash.

Ridgewood police, fire and EMS units responded, and the wrecked Toyota was removed by a flatbed tow truck.

A PSE&G crew was dispatched to replace the snapped utility pole.

Police officers at the scene did not indicate whether the driver would be issued any summonses in connection with the mishap.

The downed traffic control sign is likely to be replaced by the Village of Ridgewood's Signal Bureau.
