An 8-year-old Norwood lady remained in vicious condition Wednesday night with draining on a mind and critical spinal injuries after a head-on collision progressing in a day in Harrington Park.
A 2016 Honda Odyssey driven by a girl’s 34-year-old mom crossed a double-yellow line on Old Hook Road and struck a westbound 2016 Toyota Highlander driven by a 74-year-old Englewood male head-on Schraalenburgh Road only before 7 a.m., Acting Bergen County Prosecutor Dennis Calo said.
“I’m OK. Take caring of them,” a male told responding military officers.
There apparently were no movement marks, responders told Daily Voice.
The lady was flown to Hackensack University Medical Center aboard AirMed One.
The adults were primarily taken to Hackensack Meridian Health Pascack Valley Medical Center in Westwood before being eliminated to HUMC, responders said.
A media news that a lady was ejected from a minivan was wrong, Police Chief Albert Malouf said.
The lady was thrown from her child chair inside a vehicle, he said.
Like her, a mom remained in vicious condition during HUMC Wednesday night.
The comparison motorist postulated injuries that were deliberate critical though not life-threatening, a arch said.
An review was continuing, authorities said.
It includes an hearing of a scene, of a minivan and of phone records, they said.
Old Hook Road was temporarily sealed between Schraalenburgh and Bogerts Mill Road for a cleanup and investigation.
Harrington Park and Closter police, a Closter Volunteer Ambulance and Rescue Squad, dual Norwood ambulances, Demarest EMS, dual paramedic units from Englewood Hospital and Medical Center and AirMed One from Hackensack University Medical Center were among a responders.
