2007_04_breathalyzer.jpgA little more information about the fatal drunk driving incident Friday night on the Cross Bronx Expressway. The driver of a Nissan Pathfinder, Glenn Salera, fled the wreckage of his car - and his injured friend - after hitting a tractor-trailer. The tractor-trailer was moving slowly because of traffic, and Salera, who had been speeding, swerved to avoid the vehicle, but the front-passenger side was badly damaged (the Daily News has a picture showing a mangled car).

Salera's passenger, Carmen Irizarry, was badly injured and Salera ran from the scene, leaving witnesses to call 911. Irizarry later died of her injuries, and it appears she was not wearing a seatbelt. Salera was arrested climbing the fence at his parents' Bronx home. A neighbor said to the News, "He probably ran home to his mommy. She does everything for him."

Salera refused to take a Breathalyzer test after his arrest. He was charged with vehicular manslaughter, leaving the scene of an accident, and driving while intoxicated.
