ROSELLE PARK, NJ - An attempt to stop a vehicle by Roselle Park police officers quickly turned into a chase and a search for a man who fled the scene. 

On June 23, at approximately 2:52 a.m., Patrolman Brian MacDonald attempted to conduct a motor vehicle stop with a 2008 Honda for moving and equipment violations, while traveling on the 400 block of W. Westfield Ave. 

According to Roselle Park Police, when Patrolman MacDonald activated his overhead emergency lights and siren, the Honda accelerated away from police continuing west bound on W. Westfield Ave. The Honda continued to elude police through the secondary streets of the west side of Roselle Park where it ultimately crashed into a parked unoccupied 2005 Saturn on the 400 block of Faitoute Ave. Police said, the Honda then spun around and crashed into the front end of Patrolman MacDonald’s marked patrol unit causing damage to all three vehicles involved. Police said, no one appeared to be injured during the crash.
