MORRIS COUNTY, N.J. — A driver was thrown from his vehicle after he sideswiped an ambulance and ran off I-280 in Morris County on Saturday afternoon.

The 29-year-old West Orange man was driving a car west on the highway in Parsippany-Troy Hills just before 3 p.m. when he hit the ambulance, according to New Jersey State Police Sgt. Philip Curry.

The car then veered off the right side of the roadway and struck several trees. The driver was thrown from his vehicle and suffered serious injuries, Curry said.

No other injuries were reported.

The right westbound lane and ramp from New Road were closed for about 2 1/2 hours. The crash remains under investigation.
