Drunk Driver Gets 5 Years In Fatal Woodbridge Wrong-Way Crash
NEW BRUNSWICK – 29-year-old Andrew Frazell of Newton was sentenced Friday to serve 5 years in prison.
According to a statement by the Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew Carey, Frazell was driving under the influence of alcohol when he struck another vehicle, resulting in the death of both occupants. The incident took place on 10 July, 2014 when he drove his Jeep Liberty the wrong way onto an exit ramp along the Garden State Parkway.
He then crashed into a Honda Accord, killing 42-year-old Deron McGuire who was driving the Accord. 36-year-old Lucian Roberson of Hackensack, a passenger in the Accord was also killed in the accident.
Frazell’s blood alcohol content was found to be 0.162 after the incident, well above the legal limit of 0.08% for driving.
Frazell is required to serve at least 85 percent of his sentence before he is eligible for parole. Once he is released from prison, his driver’s license will also be suspended for five years.
Frazell pleaded guilty to two counts of vehicular homicide in September.
