The two possible drunk driving accidents happened in a period of four days.
The Parsippany Police Department got a call about the first DWI accident shortly before 11:00 p.m. on March 17. A driver reported seeing a car accident on Lord Stirling Drive at Faber Road in Parsippany, NJ.
A Parsippany police officer went to the accident scene and saw a 2005 Hyundai Tiburon that had crashed into a 2016 Mercedes Benz parked on the side of the road.
The Parsippany officer talked to the suspect, who was allegedly behind the wheel of the Hyundai at the time of the car accident. It is believed that the suspect was drunk when he failed to maintain his lane while turning left onto Lord Stirling Drive.
After being placed under arrest and processed, the suspect secured his release from police custody on his own recognizance. He will have to appear in Parsippany Municipal Court at a later date in order to answer the charges against him.
The second alleged DWI accident happened on March 21 around 8:30 p.m. Parsippany NJ police sent two officers to the area of Knoll Road and New England Drive after getting a call about a motor vehicle accident. When the Parsippany police officers arrived at the scene of the accident, they came across a 2003 Nissan Sentra had crashed into a tree.
Police investigated and soon determined that the driver, a 27-year-old man who lives in Blairstown, NJ, was probably drunk when he lost control of his car, hopped a curb, and hit the tree.
The suspect was arrested and charged with Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) and reckless driving.
