Passing 37.4 headed eastbound, armed robbery suspect from Newark, went 78west ot 24 west, to 287 south, now 78 east. Northstar's following along wiht half the troopers in NJ.

14:24: Now updating both are in custody, 2 occupants, on NJSP, while Watchung/Warren PDs is reporting one is in custody, one may be at large.
14:25: Accident scene is Warrenville Rd and Route 22, Green Brook. Second suspect may have run south across 22.

Sounds like there was a minor hand injury to one trooper while taking a suspect into custody. I didn't hear mention of any other injuries from the accident.

I can verify that just about every trooper is in this area. I'm in Warren and at least twenty cruisers and the the chopper have buzzed by in the last few. MUCH excitement...

They may have exited 24 onto Columbia Turnpike or other side streets up near the 24/287 interchange. They kept advising units to go to B2-09 and B2-04 and I wasn't picking up much on either there for a bit.
Several times on 78 West, 287 South, and 78 East it was mentioned speeds over 100mph, as high as 117.
They had spike strips waiting at mile 24 on 287, never heard if suspect had evaded the strip or whether they had even tried to deploy.
They had Northstar as the primary and Helicopter 2 as a backup both were on scene over the accident site on 22, Northstar was providing the information while the pursuit was still ongoing.
