New Jersey State Police say they have located the car and driver that allegedly fatally struck an off-duty NYPD officer in Newark early Sunday morning.

Police are investigating a hit-and-run that took the life of an off-duty rookie NYPD officer in New Jersey, the New York Daily News reports.

Vincent Harrison, 25, was killed early Sunday during a three car-involved accident on the New Jersey Turnpike. According to the Daily News:

Harrison, assigned to the 100th Precinct, pulled his 2013 Chevy Cruze sedan over on the southbound side of the turnpike after an accident with a 2003 Ford Escape near Newark Airport in Elizabeth, according to New Jersey State Police spokeswoman Alina Spies.

After stopping his car on the shoulder, Harrison got out. That’s when a 2008 Infiniti recklessly zipped between the two halted vehicles, smashing into the young cop, Spies said. The Infiniti paused before it sped away.

Harrison was pronounced dead at the scene.

The unidentified driver has been found, but no other details were released. “State troopers are working with the Union County Prosecutor’s Office to determine appropriate charges,” cops said in a statement.

Harrison was honored by the 100th Precinct and loved ones on social media.

The Long Island native served the Rockaway Beach, Queens area for two years. His friends described the officer as a kind and quiet person. His hobbies included cosplay and baseball.

Funeral plans for Harrison have yet to be announced.
