EXCLUSIVE: Three people, one of them a pre-school boy, were taken to Hackensack University Medical Center with injuries that weren’t deemed serious after a crash in Maywood this afternoon.
The 66-year-old driver of a Mercedes and his son, who was in a rear car seat, were taken by ambulance following the collision with a Toyota at Spring Valley Road and Spring Valley Avenue just before 2 p.m., Maywood Police Chief David Pegg told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .
The child’s mother, who was also in the back seat, was OK, the chief said.
