FAIR LAWN, N.J. -- A 25-year-old Riverdale man with a suspended driver's license was under the influence of drugs when he was involved in a Fair Lawn crash that sent another motorist to the hospital, authorities said.

Patrick Serafin, who records show had a previous arrest for heroin and crack cocaine possession out of Passaic County two years ago, was brought to Bergen Regional Medical Center in Paramus for treatment following last Thursday's collision on Morlot Avenue near Van Saun Place, Sgt. Brian Metzler said.

The other driver, a 57-year-old Paterson woman, was taken to St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center with injuries that weren't considered life-threatening, he said.

Serafin was charged with assault by auto, reckless driving and various drug offenses, Metzler said.
