Glen Rock Driver Pierces Utility Pole; Charged with DWI

Daisuke Ayame, 42, was charged with driving while intoxicated after he lost control of his vehicle and drove into a utility pole on Saddle River Road, police said.

A Glen Rock man was charged with driving while intoxicated early Saturday morning after his car jumped a curb on Saddle River Road and struck a utility pole, police said.

Daisuke Ayame, 42, sustained no injuries in the single-car crash that occurred just after midnight in front of Congregation Ahavat Achim, at the corner of Saddle River Road and Kramer Place on the Glen Rock-Fair Lawn border, Fair Lawn police said.

The car's impact split the utility pole at its base, causing it to lean precariously. A Public Service employee who came to inspect the scene said the fractured pole would need to be replaced.

Many people complained about the solar panels when they were installed. Maybe they are somehow to blame.

I hope he is forced to pay the cost of replacing the pole.

People are under alot of stress these days. He just added to that. Alcohol is a subtle foe. it tells you O i'll be fine. Now he has lawyer fees state fees, insurance fees. Then when he gets his license back he gets to blow into a nifty little devise that monitors you and lets you start your car. Everytime he goes to takes someone for a ride he got some explaining. ugggg people THINK!!!
