CLINTON TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) - State police say the window of a patrol vehicle was mysteriously shattered at an accident scene, an incident that shut down a stretch of an interstate highway for several hours.

The incident occurred shortly after 4:30 a.m. Saturday, when troopers responded to a single-car crash on I-78 in Clinton Township.

The troopers were attending to the driver of the car when the rear window of their sport utility vehicle was shattered by an unknown object. Authorities then shut down the highway in both directions while they investigated the cause of the damage and conducted an intense search of the area, but no possible suspects were located.

The driver of the crashed car, 29-year-old Antonio Melendez Jr. of Phillipsburg, was treated at a hospital for minor injuries.
