Drunk driver damages 4 cars
Female driver DWI; Crashes on Hudson Street
If you follow Hoboken411 on Twitter – you read the play by play involving a hit and run drunk driving incident this morning at around 1:50am.
A Hoboken resident witnessed a banged up 2007 Red Chevy Equinox (Lic. Plate VNJ-25F) speeding westbound from 14th and Washington. Tires were smoking and heavy front end damage was visible. The resident didn’t see an actual accident, but suspected that the vehicle had recently been in some kind of trouble. The SUV was eventually stopped at 500 Boulevard East in Weehawken, and the female driver from Union City (not the actual owner of the car) was under arrest, and brought to Jersey City Medical Center for treatment. Port Authority Police handled the arrest.
Hoboken Police found the damage after a resident told them the SUV hit some cars near 1212 Hudson Street. A total of four cars were damaged (two of which where hit “domino” style by that crappy “scrap truck” you often see parked uptown.)
The four plates were: WR689U, YEY-16B, WGT-62J and WJE-68W – all New Jersey plates. The pickup truck was leaking fuel, and Hoboken Fire Department soaked up the flammable liquid with “SpeedyDry.“ That pickup needed to be towed because of the leak, and because it was propped up on the sidewalk against a utility pole.
Thank god no innocent pedestrians were injured.
