New Jersey Officer Seriously Injured in Hit and Run

June 13, 2016  | 

A Newark, NJ, police officer suffered serious injuries when he was struck and dragged by a car that fled the scene early Sunday, authorities said.

The 37-year-old officer, who was listed in stable condition Sunday night, was attempting to issue a traffic summons to a vehicle around 3:40 a.m. near Foundry and Roanoke streets when that vehicle hit him, according to Acting Essex County Prosecutor Carolyn Murray and Newark Public Safety Director Anthony Ambrose.

The officer, a 14-year veteran of the force, was expected to survive, Ambrose said earlier on Sunday. Authorities did not release the officer's name, citing safety reasons.

No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing, NJ.com reports.
