"I was panicking, spectators watched the scene that looked like an episode of COPS. The car was not even in park mode before the driver jumped out. (smh) I have never been subjected to such craziness before. I can't wait to move. I completely lost my train of thought. I even took my seat belt off and began to reverse". (Metro Breaking News Fan) 

A vehicle refusing to stop for police in Hillside had authorities follow the vehicle into Newark late last night. 

Hillside police attempted to pullover a vehicle for motor vehicle violations shortly before 11 p.m. when the vehicle sped away. Police continued to follow the vehicle when it entered into Newark's South Ward where the suspect's vehicle crashed at Lyons Ave. and Wainwright Street.  Two suspects jumped from the vehicle initiating a foot pursuit. 

Hillside police caught up with and  arrested one of the suspects a short distance away while the other suspect remained at-large. 

Authorities reportedly found the captured suspect in possession of a CDS. 

There were no injuries reported.
