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.

Which automated cars are we talking about? Minority Report or Demolition Man? Because I might back that.

Bruce Knuckle, I do not understand the comment "1200 bucks for air Lawn". Please explain! Thanks! Fred

Fred, our great leaders now have an ordinance to charge for using the ambulance service. They took Volunteer right out of the equation. $600 for each person x2 =$1200 for Fair Lawn.

Bruce Knucle, Thank you for the very interesting information regarding the $600 per person charge when our ambulance is called out. Seems like it has the potential to cause a real firestorm of debate. I'm sure we will all hear more in the near future. Thanks again! Fred
