Driver injured, engine flies out of vehicle in crash on Route 3


EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey — Police say a driver was injured in a five-vehicle crash in which his engine was left on Route 3 in East Rutherford.

Police say the 19-year-old from Jersey City lost control of his car in the westbound lanes Tuesday. The vehicle crossed the median, hit a divider, flipped over into eastbound traffic and hit another car, triggering the chain-reaction accident.

The engine was left in the westbound lanes.

Deputy Police Chief Ed Bury tells The Record (http://bit.ly/1TzNgek ) newspaper the driver was taken to a hospital with severe lower body injuries.

His name has not been released.

The accident forced officials to close lanes, causing delays for traffic headed to the Lincoln Tunnel.
