HUDSON COUNTY, NJ — Three people, including an off-duty police officer, were injured last Thursday in a wreck at an active crash scene near Kearny, according to 1010 WINS.

The collision occurred at 1249 Newark-Jersey City Turnpike on August 25, at around 11:32 p.m.

Officials said the impact of the crash caused one of the vehicles to burst into flames.

An off-duty officer suffered multiple burn injuries and was rushed to Jersey City Medical Center.

The driver of the striking car was transported to University Hospital with a serious leg injury.

It was unclear how the third victim was impacted.

An investigation by the Kearny Police Department and HCPO was underway.
