Police: Unlicensed driver crashes into several cars

NEWARK - Police say Kevin Barber, 24, of Newark, was speeding and driving erratically before a multiple vehicle crash that sent at least three people to the hospital.

Authorities say Barber doesn't have a license. The 2010 Jaguar XF he was driving can be seen in video from multiple sources driving down a busy Newark Street and crashing into several cars.

Besides numerous traffic summonses for speeding, reckless driving and driving without a license, Newark police say he will also face drug charges.

Officers allegedly found hundreds of decks of heroin in and around Barber's car, as well as thousands of dollars in cash.
