Eight Injured in Route 4 Crash

The injured were reported to be in stable condition early Sunday, according to ambulance service.

A two-vehicle crash on Route 4 westbound near the Teaneck-Englewood border sent eight people to area hospitals late Sunday, authorities said.

None of the injuries were believed to be life-threatening, according to police. New York City's Hatzolah volunteer emergency medical service responded to the crash and reported on Twitter that the injured were in stable condition. At least one person was pinned in the wreck.

A black sports utility vehicle outfitted with emergency lights and a white van were involved in the crash, however, additional details were not immediately available. The Hatzolah ambulance service said the accident involved an escort for a religious official, identified as the Grand Rabbi of Satmar.

Bergen County police reopened the roadway at around 1:15 a.m.

It wasn't an official escort. Just some people going with him. The vehicle probably belonged to an EMT, hence the lights (which were off). Bernard
