Police say a Paramus man is in critical condition after being struck by an alleged drunk driver after pulling over to help a woman who had crashed while also allegedly driving drunk.

The Record of Woodland Park reports that 21-year-old Farbod Fallah of Paramus pulled his car over at around 2:15 a.m. Friday to help a woman who police say had crashed her car into a utility pole while driving intoxicated.

Police say Fallah had pulled alongside the woman's vehicle, called 911, and left his car to assist her when both vehicles were struck by a car driven by 30-year-old Gregory Komporlis of River Edge.

Police arrested Komporlis, who they say was driving drunk. It's not clear if he has a lawyer.

Fallah remains hospitalized in Hackensack.
