Carlo, Ciroc & chaos on Bergen Ave.

By Karen Zautyk

A dramatic auto accident in the early hours of July 24 led to the DWI arrest of the driver and, as described by a witness, “a chaotic scene” at the intersection of Bergen and Kearny Aves.
Luckily for that driver, who had to be extricated from his vehicle, the Kearny Fire Department was already in the area, answering a service call.
It was about 12:30 a.m., Police Chief John Dowie said, when Officers Ben Wuelfing and Joe Martin, stationed at the corner with the firefighters, heard a “loud crash” and then saw a car on Bergen about 75 feet west of Kearny Ave., facing east in the westbound lane.
One of the car’s tires was sitting on the sidewalk, and the vehicle, a 1980 Buick, had smashed into three parked autos on the north side of Bergen, Dowie said.
