Police say they were staking out a blue Subaru at an apartment complex in Prospect Park.
After seeing the officers the driver took off, heading down I-95 south to Highland Avenue.
The car crashed into an Upland police cruiser. That's where officers arrested the passenger.
The driver ran from the scene.
Police are still trying to sort out their exact connection to the drive-by shooting in which the blue car was seen in surveillance video.
