A truck was struck by a vehicle with four kids in Newark during what police described as an attempted carjacking Thursday afternoon.

A woman exited her vehicle, leaving four childing inside with the car running, shortly after 4:30 p.m. at the intersection of Heller Parkway and Branch Brook Drive, Newark Public Safety Director Brian A. O’Hara said.

A suspect then entered her car, hit a nearby truck and fled in a white Jeep, O'Hara said.

The children in the vehicle were uninjured, O'Hara said.
