Officers Paul Levi and Steven Miller responded to the area of Raymound Boulevard at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, August 10 near where it intersects with Leah Way to investigate a report of a motor vehicle crash.
When the officers arrived at the location, a vehicle involved had already fled the scene. Their crash investigation revealed that a vehicle left the roadway at a high rate of speed, drove across the front yard of a residence, struck a vehicle parked in a driveway, exited the driveway, struck a vehicle parked on the roadway pushing it into another parked vehicle and then fled the scene of the crash.
During the multiple collisions, the front license plate of the vehicle that left the location had fallen off. The officers ran the license plate number and drove to the residence that it was registered to. The driver, later identified as Dave Majumdar, Parsippany, had driven the vehicle home and parked it inside of the garage.
After a brief investigation, Mr. Mujumdar was placed under arrest by Officers Levi and Miller and charged with Driving While Intoxicated. He was transported to Parsippany Police Headquarters where he was processed before later being released pending an appearance in court. He was also charged with Leaving the Scene of An Accident, Failure To Report An Accident, Reckless Driving, Careless Driving and Speeding Across A Sidewalk. There were no reported injuries.
Editors Note: A charge is merely an accusation, and the defendants are presumed innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law.
