SADDLE BROOK - Vehicular homicide charges have beenfiled against an alleged drunken driver accused of hitting and killing two New York men who were changing a tire on a major northern New Jersey highway.
Authorities say 29-year-old Jacob Cintron, of Lodi, was being held Sunday in the Bergen County Jail.
State police say 43-year-old Wilfredo Pena, of the Bronx, was driving on Interstate 80 in Saddle Brook when the flat occurred around 2:30 a.m., and he stopped on the side of the road between Exits 62B and 62A.
Pena and a passenger, 28-year-old Segundo Fernandez-Urena, of Bay Shore, then got out to change the flat. Officials say Cintron allegedly lost control of his car while headed toward Exit 62B and struck Pena's vehicle.
Both Pena and Fernandez-Urena were pronounced dead at the scene.
