Witnesses described the chaotic scene following a police chase and arrest in Passaic, New Jersey.

PASSAIC, New Jersey (WABC) -- A high-speed police chase in New Jersey ended with the driver crashing into parked cars including a police vehicle.

It was a dramatic scene as officers rushed to take the man into custody.

It happened at the corner of Hudson and Third streets in Passaic.

Eyewitnesses say they saw a black Jeep speeding at what looked like 100 miles per hour with police on its tail.

"He ran down there, he came back, he ran into the cop car, it was just a mess," said Denisha Hines, a witness.

"Yeah, because this street here is a one-way street so he had no other choice but to come back around, and that's where he got caught," said Justine Hines, a witness.

There is no word yet on what charges the driver may face.
