NEWARK, NJ – A brand-new car was stolen from a family as they unloaded groceries and then crashed by the thieves Wednesday night.
According to the Daily Voice, a family was taking groceries out of their 2020 Hyundai Sonata near the intersection of Grove Street and Robinhood Road at about 9:45 p.m. A black Dodge Durango pulled up in front of the residence and let two people out, who jumped into the new Hyundai. The thieves sped away as the Dodge followed them.
Clifton police began chasing the vehicles as they drove off east on Route 3. The pursuit came to an end when the Dodge crashed with a police vehicle on Avon Avenue. The suspects bailed out of their car and fled the scene.
The officers were not injured in the crash.
The stolen vehicle was later recovered in Irvington.
