ONLY ON CVP: A Ford Escape slammed into an impact attenuator on Route 3 in Rutherford around noon, sending the SUV driver to the hospital.

None of the J. Fletcher Creamer crews working the Ridge Road bridge renovation project was injured in the left-lane crash.

The Escape was towed, while Creamer employees drove away the truck with the damaged attenuator.

Attenuators — more commonly known as crash or cowboy cushions — are designed to protect workers and reduce damage to structures in the event of a crash during a bridge or road project. They absorb the colliding vehicle’s energy.
