EXCLUSIVE: A Port Authority police officer was injured, as were four people in a sedan that struck the officer’s cruiser this morning in Jersey City — blocks from where three authority officers out jogging were struck by a car yesterday afternoon.
The Toyota Corolla was headed headed west on 14th Street around 9 a.m. today when it rammed into the rear passenger-side door and wheel well of a radio car driven by the on-duty officer on Marin Boulevard, the authority’s Joseph Pentangelo told CLIFFVIEW PILOT this afternoon.
All of those involved were taken to Jersey City Medical Center, Pentangelo said.
No summonses were issued, he added.
This comes after a trio of off-duty Port Authority officers who were jogging along 14th Street just before 5 o’clock yesterday were treated for minor injuries after being hit by a car.
The 64-year-old driver whose Jeep hit them was issued summonses for reckless driving and failing to yield, Pentangelo said.
