Accident of a Serious Nature on Route 17 in the Town of Mahwah
According to the statements made by Mayor Jim Wysocki, one person passed away and another was rushed to the hospital after a major accident that occurred on Route 17 south in Mahwah on Thursday morning. The victim was a male passenger in a Toyota Sienna minivan that collided with a tractor-trailer in front of a Pilot gas station.
The driver of the tractor-trailer was not injured. According to Wysocki, the female driver was transported to Hackensack University Medical Center after the accident occurred. Wysocki described the situation as “ugly.” “It was upsetting to witness.” In the immediate aftermath of the incident, traffic on 17 south was only moving in the left lane, but it has since started moving again in both lanes.
