GLEN ROCK, N.J. -- A 63-year-old Ho-Ho-Kus driver had to be cut out by firefighters after his BMW sedan slammed into a tree in Glen Rock, authorities said.

Police were trying to determine what caused Thursday crash on Maple Avenue just north of Harristown Road just after 6:30 p.m., Police Chief Dean Ackermann said Monday.

No alcohol or drugs were involved, he said.

The driver was taken to The Valley Hospital with injuries that weren't considered life-threatening, Ackermann said.

A witness who'd been driving behind him told police the southbound vehicle "began to swerve and drove directly into a borough shade tree on the opposite side of the street," the chief said.

"Officers recovered numerous vehicle parts which became dislodged and landed in a nearby parking lot," he said.

Glen Rock firefighters and Volunteer Ambulance Corps members responded along with police, the chief said.
