“It’s a tragic loss for this community,” Police Chief John Ward said from the scene. ”Our hearts go out to all those impacted by this terrible loss.”
Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli said that the incident is a "very bad accident that has not been classified as anything other than that at this time."
Ridgewood police said no charges have been filed and the investigation remains ongoing.
Police tape could be seen strung across a driveway, as the Fatal Accident Unit of the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office and a crime scene unit from the sheriff’s department investigated the death.
The investigators could be seen gathered around a black car in the driveway.
