A late night crash in Warren County’s Washington Township resulted in a 19-year-old driver being airlifted to Morristown Medical Center. According to police reports, Kyle Dempski was driving at a high rate of speed westbound on Bowerstown Road when he appears to have lost control of the vehicle, smashing through mailboxes and garbage cans before his car struck a tree. Dempski is the son of Washington Township’s former mayor, David Dempski.
The extent of Dempski’s injuries was unknown in press reports, but police obtained a search warrant to test Dempski’s blood to establish whether he had been drinking. Because of his age, any result over .01% can be used to charge an underage driver with DWI in New Jersey, with potentially serious and costly consequences for years to come. Blood test results were pending, according to media reports several days after the accident.
DWI cases are different for young drivers, but the effects of a conviction can be far reaching. Inflated insurance rates, loss of their driver’s license, and heavy fines just at the time a young person is moving into a more independent mode of living can be devastating.
