YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: An 18-year-old Paramus man who police said grabbed the wheel of a moving car, crashing it into a trio of parked vehicles while trying to rob a drug buyer at gunpoint, turned himself in last night.

Marco Druskovich was being held on $100,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail after surrendering to Hillsdale police last night, Elmwood Park Police Chief Michael Foligno confirmed this morning.

He is charged with first-degree armed robbery and two illegal weapons counts.

The 17-year-old victim told police she’d gone to meet Druskovich around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday to buy drugs, Foligno said.

After getting into her car, he put a silver semi-automatic handgun to the side of her head and demanded money, she said.

“In an act of desperation, [she] stepped on the gas pedal, rapidly accelerating,” Foligno said.

He then grabbed the wheel and the two struggled. After smashing the three cars, hers stopped, the chief said.

Taking $50, Druskovich fled with an apparent accomplice who the woman said was waiting nearby, he said.

The woman sustained minor injuries, the chief said.
