Earlier this month, a driver was allegedly drunk when he crashed into three cars and a curb at the intersection of Spring and Morris streets in Morristown, New Jersey.
According to a police report, Miguel Angel Granados-Umana was driving a gray Acura RL sedan when he struck three cars and then attempted to flee the scene. The report says that when Mr. Granados-Umana tried to flee, he crossed the intersection and crashed into a curb on the other side of the street.
A driver from one of the other cars ran on foot after Mr. Granados-Umana and physically held onto him, preventing him from leaving the scene on foot.
Later, police responded to the scene and believe that they smelled alcohol on Mr. Granados-Umana’s breath.
According to police, Mr. Granados-Umana admitted to officers that he had been drinking alcohol earlier in the evening. The police report indicates that Mr. Granados-Umana also directly asked officers, “Did I kill anyone?”
The vehicle that Mr. Granados-Umana was driving had been reported stolen from Rony’s Automotive shop on Spring Street.
