TOMS RIVER, N.J. -- A man who was arrested for causing a 20-hour road detour as a result of a DWI crash was arrested again for DWI 10 hours later after causing a hit and run crash while he was stuck in the traffic congestion he caused the previous night, police in Toms River said Thursday.
Investigators say it all began around 9:50 p.m. on Tuesday after 19-year-old Nicholas Corsair crashed an Infiniti G23 into a utility pole on Route 9 near Whitty Road.
Police say Corsair was arrested, then released at 3 a.m. Wednesday.
Then, at 7:30 a.m. Wednesday, police say Corsair was again driving drunk in the area, amid heavy traffic congestion caused by a road closure to repair the utility pole he damaged in the earlier crash.
Police say Corsair crashed his pickup truck into the back of a Honda Civic, then fled the scene.
He was located at his home and arrested at 8 a.m.
In addition to his arrest, police arrested his mother, 51-year-old Jacquelin Lotronico, for allegedly allowing her son to drive while under the influence of drugs before the Wednesday morning crash.
Police also note that 23-year-old Robert Latronico, who was a passenger in the Infiniti that crashed on Tuesday night, was arrested at the scene on multiple outstanding warrants.
