The 32-year-old officer, hired in July, sustained a broken hip and ribs and internal injuries, authorities said.

His car slammed into a utility pole on the driver’s side door while headed south on Schuyler Avenue around 10 o’clock last night, North Arlington Police Chief Louis Ghione told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .

Investigators from Ghione’s fatal crash team and the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Fatal Accident Unit were investigating.
