The crash occurred around 7:30 p.m. as the rig driver made a left from East 54th Street onto Molnar Drive.

The SUV slammed into the trailer, shearing off its top, Police Chief Michael Foligno told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .

Borough firefighters, joined by Saddle Brook Fire Department Rescue 1, removed the 45-year-old driver from the rear of the vehicle.

He was taken to St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center with severe injuries, Foligno said.

A heavy-duty wrecker was summoned to lift the rear of the tractor so that another wrecker could pull out the SUV.
