Driver arrested for driving with suspended license

Drivers in and around New York City are under constant watch by law enforcement. With the mayor’s Vision Zero plan and several programs instituted in an effort to reduce accidents and traffic fatalities, every incident is closely monitored. Safety is important indeed yet it is also important to remember that many things can make it possible for anyone to be found driving with an alcohol level over the legal limit or to have a suspended driver’s license. Many very responsible people end up in these situations and should not always be looked upon as irresponsible.

A 23-year old man is today facing charges following his arrest for driving with a suspended license while on Staten Island. Specific details of the incident are not fully known but his Honda Accord ended up on a sidewalk near Hylan Boulevard and Cleveland Avenue. In the process, two people were hit by the car. A 20-year old was injured is listed in critical condition at Staten Island University North Hospital. A 31-year old female pedestrian was killed at the scene of the accident.

The crash took place on a Monday afternoon and the involvement of any other vehicle was not reported. The driver did stay at the accident site until police arrived and he was arrested for his suspended license. It is not known if he is facing a misdemeanor or felony charge.

There can be many challenges when situations like this occur. People who are charged with traffic violations can face consequences from the Department of Motor Vehicles as well as through the law. Points on a license can also be added. Getting help from an attorney may be one way for defendants to navigate the post-arrest process.
