A tractor-trailer driver sparked chaos in New Jersey early Saturday when he rammed his rig into cars and exchanged gunfire with police who tried to stop him.
One person was killed and two others hurt as the truck driver smashed into a car in Elizabeth, and then kept going, according to reports.
Police responding to the scene at Newark and North avenues tried to stop the runaway truck but found themselves exchanging shots with the driver, who kept driving despite being shot in the leg.
The truck hit several other cars before crashing into a building. The driver, who has not been identified, was taken into custody.
Elizabeth police and the Union County Prosecutor’s Office are investigating.
