There’s been another rollover accident on the eastern end of Bloomfield Avenue. This one occurred Friday morning at about 2:15 a.m.

The car was traveling east on Bloomfield and veered off the roadway into the rocks just past Mountain Auto Body, in between Pompton and Sunset avenues. The car rolled over onto its side and came to rest between a utility pole and sign. Of the three people in the car, two needed to be taken to hospitals for their injuries; the third person did not need to go to the hospital.

The Verona Police, Verona Rescue Squad, VRS Heavy Rescue unit and Verona Fire Department were all on the scene. The Heavy Rescue team used a chain saw to remove a tree that was wedged under the vehicle so that the tow truck operator could remove the car, and VFD Engine 11 deployed a hose for protection against a fuel leak or sparks.
