Head-On Collision on Morlot Avenue Sends 2 to Hospital
Both drivers involved in a two-car accident at the corner of Morlot Avenue and Plaza Road were taken to the hospital just after noon on Tuesday.
A head-on car crash on Morlot Avenue just before noon Tuesday sent both drivers to the hospital with injuries and slowed traffic at the intersection of Morlot Avenue and Plaza Road.
The collision occurred when the elderly driver of a Mercedes headed westbound on Morlot Avenue blacked out, likely due to a medical emergency, and swerved head on into oncoming traffic, hitting an eastbound Volkswagen, police said.
Neither car involved in the accident had any passengers, and both drivers were taken to Hackensack University Medical Center after being worked on by paramedics at the scene.
Police said the injuries were not considered life threatening, but that advanced life support was summoned to the scene because of the unknown nature of the elderly driver's medical condition.
