NJ State Trooper Struck By Vehicle In High-Speed Pursuit, Manhunt Underway

BREAKING: A New Jersey State Police trooper was rushed to Hackensack University Medical Center after being injured during a high-speed stolen car pursuit that sparked a massive area-wide manhunt Sunday.

It wasn't immediately clear whether the trooper was in or out of an NJSP cruiser when injured while pursuing a black BMW X5 on the Route 495 approach to the Lincoln Tunnel in North Bergen around noontime, responders said.

The vehicle -- which had been reported stolen out of Totowa -- then fled with four black males inside, they said. 

It was later reported found in Newark.

The chase had originally gone from the northbound eastern spur of the New Jersey Turnpike to 495 before the trooper was injured at Tonnelle Avenue (Routes 1&9), responders said.

Police initially closed the circle at Route 3 and 1&9, as well as eastbound Route 495. Jersey City police and other area law enforcement agencies were on the lookout, as was a State Police helicopter.
