An 81-year-old Garfield driver was hospitalized after his 2007 Mercedes slammed into the back of a tractor-trailer in Lodi and his head hit the windshield, authorities said.

North Main Street near Avenue F was closed for nearly four hours after Wednesday’s 12:45 p.m. crash, Police Chief Donald Scorzetti said.

The Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Fatal Accident Investigation Unit was summoned, given the severity of the injuries, the chief said.

The Bergen County Sheriff’s Bureau of Criminal Identification collected evidence, he said.

The 35-year-old Pennsylvania tractor-trailer driver remained at the scene, the chief said, adding that the investigation was continuing.
