YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: A 23-year-old Wyckoff driver plowed his SUV into a tree while fleeing from Franklin Lakes police yesterday, authorities said.

Officer Nicholas Klein was on a radar detail when he tried to stop the 2014 Ford Explorer driven by Tyler Sakosits on Colonial Road just after 2:30 p.m., Lt. John Bakelaar said.

Sakosits accelerated toward Franklin Lake Road, then turned right — where the vehicle hit the tree near Lily Pond Road, he said.

Sakosits, who wasn’t injured, was charged with eluding, speeding, reckless driving, failing to signal and disregarding a traffic signal.

He also received a summons for not having insurance.
