NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ - A Newton man Andrew Frazell received a five year sentence for causing a drunk driving crash that killed two men in a head-on collision. Superior Court Judge Alberto Rivas imposed the sentence on February 14 that requires the 29-year-old to serve 85 percent of his sentence before being eligible for parole, according to Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew Carey.
In the same hearing Judge Rivas also suspended Frazell's driver's license for five years after he is released from prison, according to Carey.
On September 26, 2016 Frazell pleaded guilty to two counts of vehicular homicide. He admitted to having been drunk when he drove his 2005 Jeep the wrong way on an exit ramp to the Garden State Parkway. The accident happened in Woodbridge on July 10, 2014 at 10:38 p.m., according to Carey.
When Frazell's Jeep Liberty struck the 2005 Honda Accord Frazell was found to have a blood alcohol content of 0.162, more than double the legal limit of 0.08 according to Carey.
The Honda driver Deron McGuire, 42 of Sayerville and the passenger Lucian Roberson, 36, of Hackensack were pronounced dead at the scene, according to Carey.
The sentence is the result of an agreement with Frazell and the Middlesex County Assistant Prosecutor Sheree Pitchford. Frazell pleaded guilty and avoided a trial.
