An 88-year-old woman turned herself in to police Sunday evening after her car struck a marked Paramus patrol cruiser and kept going, authorities said.

Police were responding to reports of a 4-month-old baby who had stopped breathing when the woman's black Mercedes Benz hit the driver's side door of the police car parked on Oradell Avenue, Police Chief Kenneth Ehrenberg said.

The officer wasn't inside the vehicle at the time and no injuries were reported, Ehrenberg said.

The baby was in stable condition and an investigation was under way, the chief said.

On Friday, a 103-year-old driver crashed his car into a Starbucks storefront in Hackensack.

The city man, who turns 104 in just weeks, wasn't injured, authorities said.
