YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: A West New York woman drove off after running a light and ramming her Cadillac into a Port Authority police cruiser near the Lincoln Tunnel this morning — but left her license plate behind, authorities said.

Port Authority detectives arrested 29-year-old Danielle Rosa about an hour and a half after the crash on northbound Boulevard East, the authority’s Joseph Pentangelo said tonight.

Rosa drove the 2014 Cadillac ATS through the light at Baldwin Avenue — where it struck the PAPD cruiser occupied by two authority officers — then kept going, Pentangelo said.

Neither officer was injured seriously, but their car was disabled, he said.

The force of the crash also knocked Rosa’s plate from her vehicle.

A computer check led detectives straight to her, Pentangelo said.

Rosa posted bail and was released pending a Jan. 21 hearing on charges of assault by automobile, reckless driving, leaving the scene of a crash and failing to report an accident.
