When police come to the scene of an accident, they investigate and press charges if they believe a crime was committed. If they believe intoxication may have caused the car accident or incident, there may cause for them to file a DWI charge. A recent car accident along a New Jersey roadway resulted in a DWI charge against a driver involved in a single vehicle accident.
Around 3:30 a.m. on a Saturday, police responded to the scene of an accident. A man had been driving west in the eastern lanes of a roadway. He was alone in the vehicle, and the car overturned from the accident. At the time, police were not able to determine how long the man had been traveling the wrong way down the road or what exactly led to the accident.
