It happened just before 1:30 a.m. on Route 17 in Waldwick, according to Bergen County Prosecutor John Molinelli.
The driver of the truck, 29-year-old Brooklyn resident Ryon Cumberbatch, was uninjured in the crash, according to Molinelli.
Police Chief Mark Messner said Goodell was a five-year veteran of the Walkdwick Police Department and was also a Marine Corps veteran.
He was an outstanding and proactive officer who loved his family, his fiancee, his job and his comrades, Messner said. He will be sorely missed.
