Last week, a woman was charged with a DWI after she crashed into the back of a car, causing a 12-year-old child in the back sear to be ejected from the car. The child, whose name was not released, had to be airlifted to St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center in Paterson for serious injuries sustained in the crash. The driver of the vehicle who was rear-ended was not injured, and a third passenger suffered minor injuries.
Police say that the driver had a suspended driver’s license at the time of the accident. As a result, in addition to the DWI, she was charged with assault by auto, possession of a controlled dangerous substance, and causing severe bodily injury while operating a motor vehicle with a suspended license.
