UNION CITY, N.J. – Three police officers in New Jersey have been injured in a hit-and-run while investigating an earlier crash.
Authorities say the officers were struck by at least one motorcycle Wednesday night in Union City. It happened while the officers were investigating a crash involving a teenage bicyclist who had been hit by a vehicle and killed.
The New Jersey State Policemen's Benevolent Association wrote on Twitter late Wednesday that the officers had been taken to area hospitals. Their conditions were not immediately available. The PBA asked people to "please pray for all the officers injured."
