RIDGEFIELD - (AP) - Authorities in northern New Jersey say they believe a man who rammed his vehicle into a police cruiser strangled a woman whose body was found in his car.

Bergen County Prosecutor John Molinelli said a citizen called 911 shortly after 1 p.m. Monday to report a man bleeding and seemingly disoriented in the parking lot at Ridgefield Park High School.

When an officer arrived, the man fled in his car. The chase ended when he intentionally crashed into a Ridgefield police car.

Thirty-year-old David Goodell, of Clifton, was arrested and taken to Hackensack University Medical Center for treatment of wounds to his wrists, apparently self-inflicted.

The body of 21-year-old Vivian Tulli, of Garfield, was found in the passenger seat. Charges are pending.
