PATERSON, NJ- Two officers from the Passaic County Correctional Facility were injured in a hit-and-run on early Sunday morning, according to Daily Voice.
At approximately 6:45am, the two officers were struck by a four-door sedan that had turned onto southbound Main Street from Grand Street. The officers were heading into work at the Passaic County Jail, about a block away from the scene of the accident.
One officer was struck in the leg, and one in the arm by the driver’s side mirror of the vehicle. They were both transported and treated at St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center.
According to officials, the driver slowed down to try and fix the mirror, which was hanging off due to the accident. The driver fled, heading towards Clifton, but the mirror was found down the street.
