Hoboken Woman Saved After Crashing Vehicle Into 4 Others, Charged With DUI

On Sunday afternoon, 40-year old Jessica Sosa of Hoboken was arrested at 221 Washington Street after she was charged with DUI and drug possession after crashing into other vehicles.

Detective Lieutenant Danilo Cabrera says the arrest happened at 5:52 p.m.

Shortly after 5 o’lock, Cabrera says officers responded to the area on a report of a motor vehicle crash.  Upon arrival at the scene, they found a green Hyundai stopped in traffic facing south in the northbound lane in front of 221 Washington Street. The car’s operator was identified as Jessica Sosa, who was blue in the face, not breathing, and had no pulse.

Police pulled Sosa out of the vehicle and placed her on the ground. As they pulled Sosa out of the vehicle, police observed drug paraphernalia and wax folds believed to be  heroin. They started chest compressions and another officer arrived to assist.  Shortly after, the victim was administered two NARCAN dosages. Moments later the Hoboken Volunteer Ambulance and Jersey City Medical Center ALS unit arrived and took over medical care.

Sosa regained consciousness and was transported to Hoboken University Medical Center, where she was placed under arrest for driving under the influence.  After being discharged from the hospital, Sosa was transported to headquarters where she provided breath samples to police.  She was issued a summons for possession of a controlled dangerous substance, heroin, and drug paraphernalia.  In addition to receiving a motor vehicle summons for DUI, Sosa was issued reckless driving and possession of CDS in a motor vehicle.

The investigation also revealed that Sosa was involved in a motor vehicle crash with three parked cars and a moving vehicle. Sosa was released to a responsible party.

Sosa is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
