PALISADES PARK, N.J. -- A Hudson County driver was reported in critical condition Friday morning after barreling off Route 46 and crashing her mini-van into a four parked vehicles on a Palisades Park street hours earlier.

Borough firefighters had to cut the apparently intoxicated 29-year-old Weehawken driver from her car after the 2:30 a.m. crash on 6th Street, two houses in from East Homestead Avenue, responders told Daily Voice.

Police later had blood taken at the hospital to determine her level of intoxication, they said.

The car came off the highway's 6th Street ramp and crossed East Hempstead Avenue, responders said.

"She must have passed out," one said.

The mini-van mounted the curb and slammed into a contractor's truck -- knocking the truck into the driveway next door.

Three other vehicles were damaged in the crash, they said.
