Linden, New Jersey Police officer Pedro Abad, who drove the wrong way on a New York expressway, before crashing head on into a tractor trailer, killing two men, including a fellow Linden Police officer, had eight prior accidents and a DUI on his record.
In October of 2013, a judge suspended Abad's drivers license was for seven months for a February 2013 accident in Rathway, New Jersey which involved alcohol.
In that accident, Pedro Abad refused to submit to a sobriety test.
In the last 10 years, Pedro Abad has been involved in a total of six accidents.
And just four months after the February 2013 crash in Rathway, New Jersey, Pedro Abad was involved in yet another accident, making it eight crashes.
The March 20th head on crash was Abad's ninth crash.p
Not surprising really, considering it's clear Abad had a serious drinking problem.
I mean, just look at the photo of his bedroom below, in a basement, where several bottles of liquor can be seen next to his bed.
What I don't understand is how the Linden, New Jersey Police Department hired this guy in the first place.
Were they that desperate?
