Fatal New Jersey car accident leads to DWI, other charges

Car accidents happen for a variety of different reasons. Unfortunately, something as simple as  driver misjudgment can be labeled as being related to alcohol or drug consumption. In fact, a driver in New Jersey now faces multiple criminal charges, including DWI, following a tragic accident that resulted in the loss of a life.

The incident happened on a day in late May. According to a witness, a 28-year-old driver attempted to pass the vehicle in front of him. Unfortunately, he allegedly struck an oncoming vehicle head-on after crossing the yellow line. Both vehicles came to a stop off of the roadway.

Police say that the occupants of the second vehicle, a 19-year-old driver and 15-year-old passenger, had to be cut from the vehicle. Both were transported to the hospital, but the driver passed away. Police claim that the driver of the first vehicle walked away from the scene after his vehicle caught fire. Police claim that the man smelled of alcohol and report that he admitted to having two drinks prior to the accident; though he was taken into custody, it is unclear what his blood alcohol content was at the time of the accident.

In addition to DWI, the man is also charged with assault by auto, leaving the scene of an accident and vehicular homicide. Unfortunately, the charges against him are serious, but he may be unsure how to appropriately respond to them on his own. As such, he may choose to ask an experienced criminal defense attorney in New Jersey to help guide him through the process.
