Police in Bridgewater say a motorist was killed Saturday after suffering two head-on collisions in quick succession - one with a police car. Police in Bridgewater Township say 44-year-old Daniel Wazsylak of Hillsborough Township was killed when his Nissan Altima crossed from the southbound to the northbound lane of Finderne avenue around 10:30 p.m.

Wazsylak collided head-on with a marked Bridgewater police patrol car driven by 33-year-old officer Jason Albanese. Police say the impact threw the Altima back into the southbound lanes facing the wrong direction, where it suffered a second head-on collision, this time with a Hyundai driven by 77-year-old Anthony Mondrone of Manville.

Mondrone and officer Albanese were hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries.
