Roxbury Car Accident Leads to an Arrest
Posted on Feb 22, 2010
A Roxbury car accident involving three vehicles and a fleeing car ends with a man facing multiple charges. The incident began just before 3:00 PM on Friday afternoon, February 12, 2010, in Denville.
According to Roxbury Detective Sam Zarro, the incident began when Denville police made an attempt to pull over a GMC Envoy. The GMC fled police and was traveling west on Route 10 when the driver exited the highway onto the Commerce Boulevard jugandle. The driver has been identified as Manuel Mosquera, 36, of Union.
Roxbury authorities then called the Denville police to request assistance in apprehending the fleeing man. However, during the chase, Mosquera made an attempt to squeeze his vehicle between two other vehicles causing damage to all three vehicles. He then drove across the road, over a curb and became stuck when he struck a tree. That is when police were able to arrest Mosquera.
It was unclear as to the extent of injuries sustained by Mosquera or any of the other drivers and passengers involved in the wreck.
When police searched the GMC, they found a syringe, drugs and alcohol in the vehicle. Mosquera admitted to police that he had been drinking and taking cocaine before the accident. He faces many charges including driving under the influence, eluding police, possessing drugs in a motor vehicle, to name a few.
Out thoughts go out to the innocent victims involved in this accident and we hope that no one was seriously injured.
