According to Port Authority spokesman Joseph Pentangelo, police responded to Route 46 East and Industrial Avenue shortly after 7 a.m. for a report of a crash,
Based on preliminary investigations, it was determined that the driver was attempting to cross Route 46 while the officer -had his lights and sirens on - was traveling on the roadway in response to a call. Allegedly an illegally parked truck blocked the view of the driver, leading to the T-bone accident.
