Police in Parsippany New Jersey recently arrested a Bound Brook NJ woman accused of committing a drunk driving offense when she lost control of her vehicle and crashed into a house.
The suspect is a 25-year-old resident of Bound Brook in Somerset County, NJ. According to authorities, she was driving a 2003 Ford Explorer on Marmora Road in Parsippany NJ around 11:00 p.m. at night. When the suspect tried to make a right turn, she reportedly lost control of the SUV. The car left the road, struck a street sign, hit a tree, and then stopped after crashing into a home located on Marmora Road.
Fortunately, no one was inside the residence at the time of the alleged DUI accident.
After the car crash, the suspect was taken to Morristown Medical Center so that she could receive medical treatment for minor injuries.
Meanwhile, Parsippany detectives investigated the auto accident. Investigators determined that the suspect may have been speeding just before she lost control of her vehicle.
Additionally, detectives believe that the suspect was intoxicated. That’s why she was charged with Driving While Intoxicated (DWI).
Police also cited the suspect for several traffic violations, including driving while suspended, reckless driving, failure to maintain lane, failure to wear a seat belt, and possession of an open container of alcohol in a motor vehicle.
