STAFFORD TOWNSHIP - A Barnegat grandfather and contractor is dead following a crash that occurred in Ocean County Wednesday morning.
Robert Kusznikow, 25, may end up behind bars because of the crash that killed Michael Grosso, Jr., 76. The accident occurred in front of Suzzane Garland's home where Grosso was converting Garland's garage into a living room.
State Motor Vehicle Commission records show Robert Kusznikow has had seven license suspensions since 2002, three of them for driving under the influence. His first DUI happened when he was 15.
Despite all of those license suspensions, Kusznikow had a valid license at the time of the crash with no points.
A neighbor who declined to go on camera told News 12 New Jersey that he rushed to the crash scene and heard the driver say that he'd been using his cell phone.
No charges have been filed in the case. Authorities say they are waiting for toxicology reports.
