NEWARK (WABC) -- Police responded to two separate crashes about five blocks apart in Newark Wednesday morning.

Newscopter 7 was over both scenes after 6:15 a.m.

The first crash occurred when a car overturned into a row of parked cars at Spruce Street and Quitman Street.

Police were attempting to pull the driver over right before that crash, authorities said.

About a half hour later, another vehicle overturned at Prince Street and Court Street.

A female driver was struck by another driver who did not remain at the scene. Due to the impact, she struck two parked cars before becoming trapped in her vehicle.

Newark firefighters rescued the woman who was taken to the hospital for treatment. She is said to be stable.

Both crashes are under investigation.
