One Killed, One Injured In Collision

 

HACKENSACK, NJ – A towing operator in New Jersey was injured Monday when a runaway van struck his parked truck at a high speed, killing the van’s driver.

It is unknown what caused the van to suddenly veer off the road. Franklin Lakes Police are investigating.
