SLIDERS (9:30 p.m.): Emergency workers throughout Bergen have been scrambling since the sun set: In a span of less than an hour, crashes were reported tonight in Hillsdale, Emerson, Paramus, Ridgewood, Washington Township, and elsewhere.
The most serious was a car going over what may be a retaining wall on East Glen Avenue in Ridgewood, between Gateway Road and Standish Place ( see map ). East Glen Avenue was closed indefinitely. Medics, as well as several tow trucks were called.
About an hour later, a Range Rover hit a tree just up the road. The driver was OK, police said.
Cars have been sliding all over, including on the Washington Avenue hill in Westwood. A truck took out a “yield” sign as the driver lost control coming off Route 17 onto Linwood Avenue leading to Westwood.
A sign was toppled by a vehicle at Lincoln and Wortendyke in Emerson. A short time later, a crash was reported on nearby Forest Avenue.
No injuries were reported in a smack-up near Demarest Farms.
