YOU SAW IT HERE FIRST: A 19-year-old driver escaped serious injury after her Volvo rolled off Route 208 in Fair Lawn while she was reached for gum, police said.
The woman was taken by ambulance to The Valley Hospital in Ridgewood with a head injury that was characterized as moderate following the crash, around 4:10 p.m., at Saddle River Road, Fair Lawn police said.
Woodcliff Lake Firefighter Ken Bertani, who witnessed the crash, said the four-door sedan was headed east on Route 208 when it crossed two lanes, hit the curb and rolled several times into a set of stairs at the Saddle River Road entrance to Route 4.
“She crawled out when I ran up,” Bertani said.
Fair Lawn police firefighters, EMS and Heavy Rescue crews all responded.
Traffic was diverted from the entrance ramp until the vehicle could be righted and towed.
