Hudson County authorities say that 11 out of the 12 people hurt when a truck lost control in Union City have been released from the hospital.
Hudson County Prosecutor Esther Suarez posted on Twitter that the 12th person hurt remains in stable condition.
Meanwhile, the truck driver tells WABC-TV that the vehicle's brakes failed and that he did everything he could to minimize the damage.
The Union City Department of Public Works truck, driven by 53-year-old Eulalio Diaz, flipped Wednesday after colliding with a bus and five vehicles, then came to rest on an embankment on Route 495 West, not far from the Lincoln Tunnel.
The accident delayed the journeys of thousands of commuters eager to start their Fourth of July weekend as cars were rerouted and buses were delayed.
