Body Being Transported to Funeral Home Slides Across Roadway in Bizarre Accident

A body being transported to a funeral home went sliding across Route 17 and a horse went galloping off in a bizarre and stunning crash in Paramus on Friday afternoon.

Police say that the accident involved a funeral vehicle, a pickup truck pulling a horse trailer, with a Jeep and a sedan also caught in the pileup.

The accident caused one of the doors on the funeral vehicle to pop open, sending a casket carrying a body sliding across the roadway. The trailer carrying a horse also opened up, allowing the terrified equine to gallop off into a nearby tree line.

Three people, excluding the deceased person of course, were transported to local hospitals with minor to moderate injuries.
