At approximately 12:45 a.m., a Toyota Rav4 hit the back of a state-owned vehicle occupied by another state employee near Harristown Road, police said.

The truck spun out on impact, sending the roadside worker into the highway's left lane, authorities said.

Both workers refused medical attention, police said.

Fair Lawn, Ridgewood and Glen Rock police responded. Fair Lawn Rescue responded for a fluid spill.
