DRUNK DRIVER FLEES CRASH SCENE, STRIKES FIRE APPARATUS – NEW JERSEY

A drunk driver attempting to flee following a single-vehicle crash on the Atlantic City Expressway struck a fire truck that came to assist, State Police said.

State Police troopers arrived before the 27-year-old Williamstown man could drive off and took him and his passenger — who had a gun — into custody, authorities said.

The incident unfolded after Sean Bradford crashed his car on the eastbound Expressway near milepost 39.6 in Winslow around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday, according to a State Police spokesman.

Bradford was charged with driving while intoxicated, reckless driving and several motor vehicle offenses after ramming the Winslow Fire Department truck.

Asif Hussain, 27, of Williamstown was charged with unlawful possession of a handgun, possession of hollow point ammunition and unlawful transport of a handgun.
Both were issued summonses and released. No firefighters were injured, authorities said.
