In a story that reads a little like a metaphor, an unlicensed Colorado driver struck a guardrail in New Jersey and will be facing some consequences as a result.
According to Sparta Police, the 32-year-old Northglen, Colorado resident collided with a guardrail near the intersection of Route 15 and Father John’s Lane around 4:30 p.m. on December 23. When police spoke to the driver, Erik Tikkanen, they detected the aroma of alcohol.
Tikkanen was transported to Newton Hospital following the crash, and police obtained a court order for a sample of his blood and urine. Tikkanen has been charged with DWI, Careless Driving, Reckless Driving, Failure to Maintain Lane, Driving While Suspended, and Obstructing the Passage of Other Vehicles. His court date is pending.
