The number of motorists on New Jersey roadways increases during the holidays, as does alcohol consumption. Increased traffic and drinking leads to car accidents, so some major holidays are among the worst days to be on the road. New Year's Day, for example, has the highest percentage of alcohol-related driving deaths, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
Police in New Jersey have reportedly identified the man believed to be responsible for a hit-and-run incident that left two Union City brothers in critical condition. The accident occurred on Nov. 14, and an investigation was launched to find the driver of the red Nissan Rogue that allegedly struck the two men. Police identified a suspect on Nov. 27 and issued a warrant for his arrest.
