RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J. (NBC/WNBC) — A tractor-trailer careened off the side of Interstate 95 in New Jersey Tuesday morning, sending part of the truck’s cab into a creek below. This was the scene in Ridgefield Park: the front of the truck dangling off the roadway and partially submerged in the creek below.

Emergency crews were able to rescue the truck’s driver from the water. There is no word yet on the extent of the driver’s injury or if anyone else was hurt. Interstate traffic was slowed, but the roadway remained open.
