A post from March concerned a tragic car accident in which three Linden police officers and a friend were in a car that was heading in the wrong direction on the West Shore Expressway when it crashed, killing two of the occupants. The operator of the car in that fatal accident was a police officer who now faces aggravated vehicular homicide and manslaughter charges under New York law. The case was well-publicized because of the circulation of photos of the officers drinking at a strip club prior to the accident.
