HACKENSACK, N.J. -- Seven people were taken to Hackensack University Medical Center with minor injuries after a Saturday night head-on crash on River Street that involved several other vehicles.

A car headed south on River Street veered into oncoming traffic and struck another head-on, Capt. Francesco Aquila told Daily Voice.

They struck a third vehicle, then careened onto the lot of a Toyota dealership, where three more cards were struck -- with one of them being pushed into fourth, said Aquila, the department's commanding officer.

No summonses were immediately issued, although an investigation was continued, he said.

"It was just a very bad accident," Aquila said.

Four of the victims sustained minor cuts and bruises, while three elderly victims complained of various pains, he said.
