FAIR LAWN, N.J. -- The 74-year-old driver of an empty school bus that slammed into a utility pole in Fair Lawn early Tuesday was "disoriented and did not recall the crash," police said.
The crash occurred at Fair Lawn Avenue and Saddle River Road just before 8 a.m.
An ambulance took the driver to The Valley Hospital in Ridgewood for evaluation, while Fair Lawn Fire Company #4 tended to a power line downed by the crash a block away, at Kuiken Terrace, Sgt. Brian Metzler said.
PSE&G was tending to the damaged pole, he said.
Delays and closures of both roads at the intersection were expected most of the day.
