ROSELLE PARK, NJ - Roselle Park Police are looking for help to identify the driver of a motorcycle that eluded them and put numerous drivers at risk. 

According to police, at approximately 12:15 pm on Tuesday, July 18, officers attempted to pull the driver over due to the motorcycle not having a visible registration (license plate). Police say, the driver ignored the marked patrol vehicle's activated lights and siren and continued East on Westfield Ave. at a high rate of speed. The driver continued into Elizabeth at a high speed and made several dangerous maneuvers to elude police. The pursuit was terminated because of the risk to other drivers.

Authorities said, this same driver is suspected of being involved in a similar incident, eluding the Elizabeth Police Department earlier in the day on Tuesday.
