Police are hoping to find witnesses to a fiery crash on Route 3 in Clifton last night, in which a GMC truck headed the wrong way slammed head-on into a Camaro, killing the car’s 80-year-old driver.

The 2000 GMC Yukon, driven by a 44-year-old Nutley, woman entered Route 3 east headed west just after 11:30 before it crashed into the 1983 Chevy, police said.

The Yukon’s driver was ejected and later taken to St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center in Paterson, which has a trauma unit.

The 80-year-old Rutherford resident was pronounced dead at the scene.

If you saw anything or know anything about the crash, the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office and Clifton police ask that you call them:

PCPO: (973) 881-4800

CLIFTON PD: (973) 470-5900
