Police: Drunk Driver Fled Route 4 Crash in Teaneck

Four people treated for minor injuries and 22-year-old woman charged after Route 4 crash late Sunday, according to county police.

A drunk driver turned herself in to county police hours after she fled the scene of an accident on Route 4 that left four people injured late Sunday, authorities said. 

Police were called to the crash, near Queen Anne Road, around 11 p.m. and found a 2008 Honda Civic with heavy damage facing westbound in the eastbound lanes, according to Bergen County Police Lt. James Giblin. The second vehicle, a 2012 Chrysler minivan, was found nearby. 

Two people in the minivan suffered minor injuries and were taken to Englewood hospital, while two passengers in the Honda were also treated for minor injuries at Holy Name Medical Center. 

Witnesses told officers the Honda's driver fled on foot down Queen Anne Road, police said. A county police K-9 unit searched the area, but couldn't locate the woman. 

About three hours later, 22-year-old Krystal Arce called county police to turn herself in, according to police. 

"Ms. Arce admitted that she had been operating the Honda at the time of the crash and investigation determined that she had been operating the vehicle while under the influence of alcoholic beverages," Giblin said in a statement. 

Arce, of Haskell, was charged with four counts of assault by auto, driving while intoxicated, reckless driving, leaving the scene of an accident and not having an insurance card. 

She was later released on her own recognizance to a family member.

Thank goodness no one was seriously injured. For the life of me, I do not understand the mind of an intoxicated person who gets behind the wheel. I am guilty of having had one too many. On those rare occassions, someone else drives or I sleep it off. Why put yourself and others in jeopardy?
