ONLY ON CVP: A motorist was taken to the hospital after her car was broadsided on her side by a tow truck in Fair Lawn this morning.
Members of the Fair Lawn Heavy Rescue Squad freed the driver using the Jaws of Life after a flatbed from Classic Towing in Paterson struck her four-door Honda Accord at the corner of Broadway and 17th Street just after 10 a.m.
Fair Lawn EMS tended to the woman before she was taken to St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center in Paterson with injuries that weren’t considered life-threatening.
Also responding were Fair Lawn and Elmwood Park police and paramedics from Hackensack University Medical Center.
Traffic on westbound Broadway was temporarily diverted onto side streets.
