FAIR LAWN, N.J. -- A Rochelle Park man was drunk when he walked away from a Fair Lawn crash that injured the other driver, authorities said.
Responding officers found both vehicles heavily damaged on Broadway at Plaza Road on Dec. 18, Sgt. Brian Metzler said Tuesday.
Moments earlier, an 18-year-old Orange, CT woman sustained a head injury when her 2007 Toyota was struck from behind by a 2006 Honda, Metzler said.
Fair Lawn Ambulance took her to Holy Name Medical Center in Teaneck.
Meanwhile, a witness told police the other driver walked east on Broadway, the sergeant said.
Officers found 27-year-old Willie Guzman near 34th Street, Metzler said.
After failing a roadside sobriety test, Guzman was taken into custody and later released to a responsible adult pending a hearing on charges of assault by auto, reckless driving, leaving the scene of a crash, using a cellphone while driving and DWI.
