The 2008 Christmas holiday resulted in drunk driving fatalities and serious injuries. Early Sunday morning, a Glassboro man slammed his vehicle into the back of a dumb truck resulting in the death of his passenger. Chemical tests allegedly revealed a blood alcohol concentration over the legal limit, resulting in vehicular homicide charges being filed filed.
On Tuesday, another alcohol related accident occurred in Kearny. The collision resulted in serious injuries and involved a motorist with a BAC of .19, over twice the legal limit. Assault by Auto charges have been filed.
The holiday season is always a festive time involving alcohol. Unfortunately, this seems to result in DWI related fatalities every year. If the toxicology stands up in cases like these, the defendants have serious jail exposure.
