TOMS RIVER - A 19-year-old Toms River man was charged with allegedly driving while intoxicated twice in the span of 10 hours.

Police say Nicholas Corsair crashed into a utility police Tuesday evening at around 9:30 p.m at the intersection of Route 9 and Whitty Road. He was arrested and charged with DWI, as he was suspected of using illicit drugs. He was released from jail at around 3 a.m.

JCP&L crews were called to make repairs overnight to the utility pole. The repairs caused detours around the interaction causing traffic to build up.

Toms River police were then called to the same intersection Wednesday at 7:30 a.m. for reports of a hit-and-run crash. A Chevy pickup supposedly rear-ended a Honda Civic driven by a 54-year-old man, and drove away. The accident happened in the traffic that built up due to repairs on the utility pole.

Police determined the driver of the pickup truck was Corsair, who had been released from jail a few hours earlier. He was arrested again at his home and charged with operating a vehicle under the influence.

Corsair's mother, Jacquelin Latronico, was also arrested and charged with allegedly allowing her son to operate a vehicle while under the influence of narcotics.
