A man suspected of burglarizing a Fair Lawn home Tuesday night struck a police officer with his car before crashing into a tree as police chased him, authorities said.

Fair Lawn police were called to a Garwood Road home shortly before 7 p.m. after the homeowner received an alert on his phone that someone was inside his house. The homeowner’s surveillance video app showed a masked person inside, police were told.

As officers arrived, they found a man reclined in a parked car around the corner on Gurney Terrace.
