New Jersey highway crash leaves officer seriously injured

A Bergen county police officer was listed in critical condition after his car was rear-ended by a drunk driver on Route 46. The collision caused more than a six-hour delay on the busy public highway.

The incident took place near Summit Avenue. According to police, two Bergen County police vehicles had stopped on Route 46 after one of them reportedly was having trouble with his radio. One of the police cars was struck from behind by a Ford Fusion. The accident left the officer trapped in his patrol car.

After he was taken out of his vehicle, he was transported to Hackensack University Medical Center. He suffered bleeding and a fractured skull. The officer, age 39, is married and a father of two. He has been with the county police force for four years.

The driver of the Ford Fusion took off on foot but was later discovered by the Lodi Police Department on Christopher Court in the backyard of a residence there.

The driver of the Ford Fusion, 37, is a mathematics and athletics coach at Lodi High School. He was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, leaving the scene of a serious bodily collision, evading apprehension, obstruction of justice, failure to yield to an emergency vehicle, a DWI and reckless driving.

Many DWI arrests do not result in conviction. It is critical if you have been charged with a DWI that you investigate the various options you have, as well as the penalties involved. In the state of New Jersey, it is beneficial to seek help as soon as possible, as time is of the essence.
