A 66-year-old Waldwick woman was critically injured in a head-on collision with a tractor trailer on Goffle Road Thursday afternoon.

The accident occurred around 2pm, when the injured driver's Mazda Protege, traveling northbound on Goffle Road in Ridgewood, crossed the double yellow line into Wyckoff and crashed with an Trucking/UPS tractor trailer in front of 545 Goffle Road, Wyckoff.   

The victim was pinned in her vehicle, and Wyckoff Firefighters used the Jaws of Life to free her. Ridgewood Emergency Services transported her to St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center in Paterson. A paramedic unit from The Valley Hospital assisted with treatment and transport.  

The accident is being investigated by Wyckoff Police Department.
