YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: Mahwah firefighters extricated a 27-year-old driver from Secaucus who was in critical condition after his car rolled near southbound Route 287’s split with Route 17 following a collision with another car this afternoon.
Hackensack University Medical Center’s AirMed One landed at the Sheraton Mahwah Hotel off Route 17 and took him to St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Paterson.
Police stayed with the man as firefighters arrived and removed the roof of his Honda Accord.
He apparently lost control of the car after it was grazed by another vehicle, they said.
The other driver, a Pennsylvania man, was taken by ambulance to the Valley Hospital in Ridgewood with what were characterized as minor injuries.
