Cops: Drunk Kinnelon Teen Overturns Vehicle
Driver, bleeding from the ear, transported to hospital.
A 19-year-old Kinnelon man was transported to Morristown Hospital with a head injury and charged with DWI Thursday after police said the car he was driving overturned into a creek on The Crossway, in Smoke Rise, around 11 p.m.
Gregory Prommel was issued summonses for careless driving, failure to maintain a lane and underage consumption of alcohol, in addition to DWI. Police said he was bleeding around his right ear and was transported by Tri-Boro First Aid Squad to the hospital.
Det. Patrick McDonnell said Prommel appeared to be the only person in the vehicle, which had fluid running through it from the creek. The Morris County Hazmat team and Kinnelon Volunteer Fire Co. responded to assist with the fluids.
The vehicle was towed by Butler International.
