Looks like side and front airbag deployment.  Ouch.  Good thing guardrail was there or the car would have nosedived into the foundation pit, 12 feet down maybe. Hope driver is ok.
Hackensack Discussion / A guardrail does its job at the 395 Main project
« Last post by BLeafe on April 17, 2018, 03:15:01 PM »
Sometime after midnight early last Saturday morning, I heard something that sounded like a crash, but couldn't see anything. A little later, I saw lots of emergency lights reflecting off buildings in the vicinity of Main and Ward, but couldn't see any vehicles because the building on the SW corner of State and Ward blocked the view.

I went out on my roof to the northernmost edge and could see:

1. Two police vehicles, a fire engine, an ambulance and some dark car that was partially-obscured by the ambulance.

2. Once the ambulance left, a police car replaced it, but I could see the damaged front end of the car.

3. As a tow truck pulled the car onto its flatbed, the heavily-indented guardrail came into view.

4. After a quick cleanup, everyone left and I did a long exposure at 2am and made it a black-and-white.

5. Later that morning, I went to the scene for a closeup of the guardrail that saved the 395 Main hole in the ground.

Iím guessing the driver was another resident whoís even more unhappy than me about having his/her cherished view of something taken away soon by this project.

What a protest! Iím glad I didnít think of it.

Polls open at 2 p.m. to elect three members of the Board of Education and vote "yes" or "no" on the proposed $117 million budget, which uses nearly half of your property taxes.

So, please get off your ample tushes and vote.

IF THE PAST IS ANY GUIDE, MORE THAN 90% OF THE REGISTERED VOTERS WILL IGNORE TUESDAY'S SCHOOL ELECTION: That will be the case, even though nearly half of your property taxes go to support the schools:

What's your excuse for not voting?

This picture of Captain Harry B. Doremus was taken in September 1917 on arrival at the new Camp McClellan AL.  Captain Doremus was in command of Company G / 5 Infantry / New Jersey National Guard.  This unit would eventually become part of the 114th Infantry in the newly formed 29th Division.  A year later they would take part in the Meuse-Argonne Offensive bringing an end to the Great War.  Picture from the photo album of my great uncle 1st Sgt. George Hedges who served with Captain Doremus from 1916 ( Mexican Border Conflict ) until Captain Doremus was kia on October 27.1918
