Posted on Feb 17, 2011

Late last month, an alleged drunk driving accident took the life of one person and injured two others in Paterson, New Jersey. According to Paterson police, a 23-year-old Paterson resident named Roger Gallego will be facing vehicular homicide charges for the death of 22-year-old Tiffany Robinson, also of Paterson. Other charges, including drunk driving charges, may be possible.

The accident occurred around 3:15 a.m. on Sunday January 30, 2011, when Mr. Gallego allegedly ran a stop sign and hit a car with a driver and two passengers. Ms. Robinson was in the front seat of the vehicle that was hit and was reportedly ejected through a window and pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. The driver and a back seat passenger in the vehicle were taken to St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center in Paterson for treatment. They were later released from the hospital. There is no report of any injury to Mr. Gallego.

Mr. Gallego was held on $100,000 bail in Passaic County jail following this New Jersey car accident.

We extend our sincere condolences to the family and friends of Tiffany Robinson, and we extend our best wishes for a full and speedy recovery to the other two victims of this Paterson car crash.
