NYC man hurt when van, truck collide on GWB in NJ


FORT LEE, N.J. (AP) — A New York City man was hospitalized after the commercial van he was driving collided with a tractor-trailer on the George Washington Bridge in northern New Jersey.

Port Authority police say the crash occurred around 8:15 a.m. Sunday on the upper level of the bridge in Fort Lee, when the van struck the rear of the tractor-trailer. The van driver had to be extricated from the vehicle, which is owned by a New York-based bread company.

Port Authority Police spokesman Joe Pentangelo said the van’s 32-year-old driver, whose name was not released, suffered injuries that were not considered life-threatening. But further details on the driver’s condition were not disclosed.

No charges have been filed so far, but the cause of the accident remains under investigation.
