New Jersey car accident leads to DWI claim

Every single driver has likely made a mistake while behind the wheel of a motor vehicle. A misunderstanding of a traffic pattern or miscalculation of another driver's speed can have devastating consequences. Despite the potential for all drivers to accidentally cause a collision, police in New Jersey and across the country are often quick to assume that alcohol or drugs were involved. In fact, a man now faces a DWI charge, among others, after he was reportedly involved in a collision.

The incident that led to the charges against the man reportedly happened just before 5:30 p.m. on a day in early January.  According to reports, a 63-year-old male driver attempted a left turn at an intersection. Unfortunately, he reportedly struck a vehicle driven by an 82-year-old woman.

The woman's vehicle then struck a traffic light, which reportedly fell and landed on the woman's vehicle. The woman reportedly fractured her ankle in the crash while the man suffered a cut to his head. The latter faces multiple charges. In addition to driving while intoxicated, he was charged with assault by auto, failing to yield the right-of-way at an intersection and reckless driving.

The need to determine the exact cause of an accident is understandable. However, in order for a person to be convicted of charges related to a collision, there must be sufficient evidence to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. It is unclear what evidence New Jersey police have to support their claims regarding the man now facing DWI and other criminal charges.
