Cop Cars Crash in North Jersey: Police

Two Paterson, New Jersey, police cruisers crashed in Passaic on Wednesday morning, sending a tire flying through a store window and leaving debris scattered at an intersection, police said.

The wrecked cop cars were at the intersection of Main and Van Houten avenues at 5:30 a.m. One was being towed away and a second was smashed up on a sidewalk with one of its wheels missing.

Nearby, the windows of a MetroPCS store were shattered and a tire and other debris littered the ground. One tire apparently flew into the store through the window.

It's not clear what led up to the crash or why the Paterson officers were in Passaic, but police said a crime took place in Paterson around 4 a.m.
