When Port Authority police tried to pull the driver over after he struck a vehicle in the Staten Island-bound lanes of the upper roadway at about 5 p.m., he turned around and fled, law-enforcement sources said. While driving toward Brooklyn in the wrong lanes, his van collided with an unmarked police car, the sources said.
One sergeant and another cop were taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The driver was arrested. Read more at the NEW YORK POST.
