ELIZABETH – A suspected felon crashed into a toll-booth median at New Jersey Turnpike Interchange 13 this morning, ending a four-mile police pursuit, according to a Star-Ledger report.
Qawwee McQueen, 35, of Newark was wanted in connection with a February shooting in Elizabeth, the report said.
Police saw McQueen get into his vehicle on Fulton Street, but officers were unsuccessful in getting him to stop.
