TRENTON, NJ – According to the Trentonian, a city firefighter is facing charges after he struck a woman crossing the street while he was intoxicated.
Bryan Davis, a 2017 recruit, hit a 57-year-old female with his vehicle near the 400 block of Greenwood Avenue at approximately 2:30 a.m. on February 8. Davis was charged by summons on May 29.
The woman suffered serious injuries and was taken to a nearby hospital with multiple broken bones, which required surgery.
Authorities waited for the results of a blood-alcohol test before they brought charges of assault by auto, driving while intoxicated, reckless driving, and careless driving.
Davis’s blood alcohol level was found to be .11 following the accident, which is higher than the state’s .08 legal level of intoxication.
