We're told the accident occurred around 8:30 PM ET on Route 4. Sources tell TMZ Tuck was driving a brand new Cadillac Escalade (the tags were still on it) and the other driver was in a Nissan Maxima.

According to a witness on scene, the other driver was walking around afterward, muttering something to the extent of, "I can't believe I hit Justin Tuck."

Bergen County PD described the accident as minor (see Tuck's SUV below) and said there were no injuries -- except for a damaged street sign.

TMZ spoke with Tuck and his wife after they returned home. Justin's wife told us, "We're fine."

Just this week, Tuck was selected to the Pro Bowl -- and the Giants have a big game Sunday at Washington.

uhm.... we just HAD A BLIZZARD UP HERE!!!! you must remember that, CONSIDERING YOU HAVE BEEN MAKING FUN OF IT ALL WEEK ON YOUR SHOW TMZ!!! Do you think this accident was the only one that HAPPENED this PAST WEEK IN THE NY/NJ AREA?????? We are still digging out in areas and at night, icing up AGAIN. Maybe, just MAYBE that is what happened and since it was a tiny, minor accident... okay, a NEW ESCALADE, a scratch could cause a few thou, BUT, it is LEAVING THE SCENE OF AN ACCIDENT IF YOU 'KILL' A STEET SIGN. Do YOU, TMZ REMEMBER THIS???? You went on and on about Heather Locklear knocking down a sign at 3 am and not calling the police. Even though she did not hit another car and one of her people reported it the next day. AND then some moronic CA DA wanted to open A CASE ON IT. Were all of you out of the office at 8pm last nite and had an intern on duty and he/she was DESPERATE TO POST SOMETHING, ANYTHING?

How come everybody else gets garbage for driving SUV's yet the rich - whether stars or sports guys - get a pass? Btw, where are all those Prius' all the stars bought? They're sitting in garages while they tool around in their, yup...you guessed it, their SUV's.

doyers, since it had to be like an intern or someone like than watching the boards-everyone was out partying, Harvey with his Orange mug, etc. They have to tell said person how to lie, uhm, make it more exciting (LIE). Justin Tuck was in an accident right before midnight in the wilds of New Jersey. We were told by BCPD he did not go to the NEAREST HOSPITAL. WHY NOT? Who was the woman in this unidentified SUV no one has ever seen Tuck in before? His Car was in his driveway at home. Why a different car? The other driver, of some foreign car, talked to Tuck and was seen nervously walking around muttering to himself. news to come..
