DWI suspected in fatal New Jersey pedestrian accident

Because driving a motor vehicle is something that is essential to many people's everyday lives, it may also be something that many people take for granted. Drivers must constantly make multiple split-second decisions that account for a variety of different factors. Driving at night, for example, can make it even more difficult due to a lack of visibility. Unfortunately, police in New Jersey believe that a fatal accident was the result of a driver who was DWI, driving while intoxicated.

The accident happened during the early morning hours of a day in January. Police say that the victim, a 35-year-old woman, was crossing the street with a group of friends when she was allegedly struck by a vehicle that fled the scene. The woman suffered multiple injuries in the crash. Family members ultimately made the decision to remove life support, and she passed away.

Police have recently announced charges against the man they say was the driver of the vehicle that struck the woman. According to police allegations, the man had been drinking to celebrate his birthday. Following the alleged incident, police believe that the man hid his vehicle at the auto repair shop where he works and repaired the damage to the vehicle. It is unclear how police determined that he was the man involved in the accident.

In addition to the allegation of DWI, the man is also charged with aggravated manslaughter, hindering apprehension and tampering with evidence. Despite his arrest and the charges, New Jersey police are still asking that anyone with information regarding the accident contact them. The loss of the woman's life is a tragedy and the desire to hold someone accountable for that loss is understandable; however, there must be sufficient evidence to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt for a conviction.
