UPDATE: A 21-year-old Northvale driver intentionally slammed his Jaguar into an SUV on a Norwood road, critically injuring one of the occupants, in an apparent suicide attempt.

Solomon Kim, who suffered back and leg fractures, “intentionally crashed into the victim’s vehicle, causing the injuries” to a man and woman, both 46, Tuesday afternoon on Livingston Street, Bergen County Prosecutor Mark Musella said.

The impact sent the couple’s Infiniti spinning into a wooded area and leaving a long debris field.

The couple also were taken to Hackensack University Medical Center, where the woman underwent surgery for internal bleeding, responders said.

Kim, meanwhile, had to be extricated by Harrington Park and Norwood firefighters.

Detectives with the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Fatal Accident Investigations Unit later charged him with two counts of aggravated assault, Musella said.

Kim remained at HUMC in the custody of Bergen County sheriff’s officers pending a first appearance in Central Judicial Court in Hackensack, he said.
