Hoboken Police Officers charged a New York woman with Assault by Auto last weekend, according to the department.
On Jan. 30, at about 12:16 a.m. Hoboken Police Officers Michael Straten and Marvin DeJesus responded to the area of 100 Marshall St. on a report of a pedestrian struck by a motor vehicle that had left the scene.
Upon arrival, Straten spoke to the victim who reported that she was loading her skies through the driver’s side of the car when a vehicle traveling south on Marshall Street slammed into her skies pinning her between the skies and the car door.
The vehicle did not stop and kept traveling.
The victim complained of pain and was later transported to the hospital.
Dejesus located two vehicles pulled over in the intersection of First and Marshall streets and located a witness and a suspect.
The suspect was identified as Barbara San Martin, 42, of New York, NY.
Officer Dominick Allegretta performed a field sobriety test and determined that San Martin was allegedly unable to safely operate a motor vehicle.
She was placed under arrest for Driving While Intoxicated and transported to headquarters for processing.
Breath Samples were taken by Officer Harold Milne, which revealed a blood alcohol result that was allegedly close to triple the legal limit.
San Martin received additional motor vehicle summonses for Reckless Driving and Leaving the Scene of a Motor Vehicle Crash and was also charged on a summons with Assault by Auto.
She was released to a responsible party and is considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
