FRANKLIN LAKES, N.J. -- Both drivers -- one from Fair Lawn, the other from Leonia -- and a 4-year-old boy survived a serious crash on northbound Route 208 Wednesday morning, Franklin Lakes police told Daily Voice.

Jackie Nam of Leonia swerved her 2007 Honda Odyssey to avoid crashing with an unknown vehicle that she told police came into her lane just after 8:30 a.m., Capt. John Bakelaar said.

Her vehicle then struck a 2005 Dodge Caravan driven by Stacie Geffner-Attiya of Fair Lawn, sending it off the roadway and over a curb, a patch of grass and a boulder, sending it airborne, Bakelaar said.

The Caravan hit two trees, then rolled over, knocking down a New Jersey DOT light pole before coming to rest, the captain said.
