Man Charged in Teaneck DWI Crash Had Record of License Suspensions, Violations
New Milford man’s sister left with severe internal injuries, authorities say.
The New Milford man charged in a single-car River Road crash that left his sister hospitalized with serious internal injuries had his drivers license suspended nearly two dozen times, a state official said Tuesday.
Alejandro J. Beasley Jr.’s license was suspended 23 times between January 2007 and January 2012, all for administrative reasons, according to state Motor Vehicle Commission spokesman Mike Horan. Administrative suspensions are issued for offenses including not paying surcharges and failure to appear in court.
Beginning in April 2006, Beasley received 17 violations and had six points on his license, Horan said. Nine of the violations were for being an unlicensed driver, but none were for driving while intoxicated.
Beasley, 27, was driving while intoxicated around 4:30 Sunday morning when he suddenly drove off River Road and slammed into a tree near Dearborn Street, the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office said. Beasley and his 24-year-old sister, Ariana K. Beasley, both suffered internal injuries in the crash.
He was charged with assault by auto, driving while intoxicated, careless driving and uninsured motor vehicle. A Bergen County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman confirmed he had posted bail.
His sister remained hospitalized at Hackensack University Medical Center after undergoing surgery for internal injuries to her spleen and kidneys, prosecutors said. A hospital spokeswoman said she was not authorized to release any information Tuesday.
Signs of the crash were still visible in the residential area two days after the wreck. Debris from a car were strewn across the sidewalk and a nearby fence was in pieces.
It was not immediately clear if Alejandro J. Beasley had retained an attorney and efforts to reach him were unsuccessful.
