Parsippany NJ police are looking into two different car accidents that allegedly involved drunk drivers.
The two possible drunk driving accidents occurred over a four-day period.
The Parsippany Police Department’s Communication Center received a report of the first DWI crash around 10:58 p.m. on March 17. Someone called and told police that the accident occurred on Lord Stirling Drive at Faber Road in Parsippany, New Jersey.
A Parsippany NJ police officer soon arrived at the accident scene and came across a 2005 Hyundai Tiburon that had slammed into a 2016 Mercedes Benz. The Mercedes was reportedly parked on the side of the roadway when the other vehicle crashed into it.
The Parsippany cop spoke with the suspect, who was allegedly driving the Hyundai at the time of the motor vehicle accident. The police officer determined that the suspect had probably caused the accident when he failed to maintain his lane as he turned left onto Lord Stirling Drive.
After being arrested and processed, the suspect was released on his own recognizance. He has a pending court date in Parsippany Municipal Court.
The second alleged DWI crash occurred on March 21 at approximately 8:25 p.m. Parsippany police dispatched two officers to the area of Knoll Road and New England Drive after receiving a report of a car accident. When the Parsippany officers got to the scene of the crash, they saw that a 2003 Nissan Sentra had struck a tree near the road.
A subsequent investigation led police to determine that the driver, a 27-year-old male from Blairstown NJ, was drunk when he crossed the roadway, hopped onto a curb, and crashed into the tree.
The suspect was placed under arrest and charged with Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) and reckless driving. He was later released on his own recognizance.
