The driver of the cement truck struck a vehicle on Route 22 East at Washington Road and lost control, going off the road and into the corner of Rip's Liquor Store around 6:30 a.m., according to Green Brook police Chief William Coward.

No other vehicles or pedestrians were involved in the crash.

Coward said the circumstances of the crash were under investigation. The extent of the damage to the liquor store was not immediately known Thursday morning.
