UPDATE: A drunk driver from Newark took out a traffic signal and street light before his unregistered, uninsured van slammed through the front window of an Elmwood Park dry cleaners tonight.

Teresio Castrourdiales, 42, was headed east on Broadway around 8:30 p.m. when he lost control of the van at Iozia Terrace, Police Chief Michael Foligno said.

After toppling the traffic signal, the van veered across the median, hopped a curb and slammed into the cleaners’ plate-glass window, he said.

Castrourdiales, who wasn’t injured, was issued summonses for DWI, refusing to submit to a breath test, reckless driving, careless driving and separate tickets for driving an unregistered vehicle and uninsured vehicle.

He was released to a family member pending a court appearance, the chief said.

Broadway was closed in both directions for two hours and the eastbound side for another 2½ hours.

Foligno thanked Fair Lawn police, the Bergen County Sheriff’s Office and Elmwood Park firefighters.
