YOU SAW IT HERE FIRST: A rotted tree fell on a tractor-trailer that apparently banged into it, closing a stretch of Spring Avenue in Ridgewood this afternoon.

Crews needed roughly two hours to free the rig and remove the debris in front a home in the 500 block.

Spring Avenue was closed between Kenilworth Road and South Pleasant Avenue while they worked.

The tractor-trailer wound up on the ordinarily quiet residential street due to a posted detour on nearby East Ridgewood Avenue, where a PSE&G utility pole replacement project was continuing.

Ridgewood Shade Tree Department personnel used a bucket truck and chain saws to remove the tree in pieces.

The truck was then driven away.
