Whenever someone commits a driving infraction or a crime while operating a motor vehicle, any criminal charges pursued against that individual may be amplified if there was an accident involved. Reportedly, this was the case recently in New Jersey when a car accident occurred. The teacher who was behind the wheel was allegedly driving while intoxicated and struck a patrol car.
The accident occurred last April just before 2 a.m. as a police officer was stopped alongside another police officer’s car. The officer had reportedly stopped to help with a radio problem. As he was at that scene, a car came behind and rear-ended the car.
