Suspects in police pursuit die in fiery car crash in BayonnePosted: Updated:
? Men who led police on a high-speed chase from Jersey City to Bayonne died when their car crashed into a building and exploded Saturday.
Authorities say they started pursuing the car with Maryland plates along JFK Boulevard in Jersey City and had to set up a roadblock in Bayonne to stop the two men. According to investigators, the car crashed into a plumbing store and burst into flames when the driver tried to avoid the roadblock. Authorities have not said what led to the chase.
The owner of the damaged store says repairs are underway and he lost business due to the accident. The store will reopen Monday.
