UPDATE: Two officers and a civilian were injured in a crash involving two Clifton police vehicles, one of which overturned, Monday night, responders said.
Police were headed to a report of a carjacked vehicle from which shots had been fired in Paterson a short time earlier when the crash occurred at the intersection of Main and Clifton avenues around 9:30 p.m., Detective Lt. Robert Bracken.
The two officers and civilian were all taken to St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center, where they were treated before being released, Bracken said.
The carjacked vehicle -- a 2004 Acura -- wasn't found, he said.
The Acura apparently had been taken by force earlier in the day. Someone inside it then fired more than a dozen rounds at East 38th Street and 17th Avenue in Paterson moments before the crash, responders said.
No one was believed wounded in the shooting.
