South Hackensack police tell The Record that 47-year-old Henry Schuck, of Hampton Bays, New York, initially was stopped Sunday morning for not having his seat belt buckled. But as they spoke with him, he allegedly drove off.

The officers then pursued Schuck's vehicle during a brief chase that ended around 9:30 a.m. in nearby Little Ferry. Schuck then allegedly rammed both police cars, hitting one head on.

The injured officers were being treated at a hospital, but their injuries were not considered life-threatening.

Schuck faces several charges, including eluding and aggravated assault on a police officer. It wasn't known if he has retained an attorney.
