Drunk driver charged slams car into house in Morganville, NJ

MARLBORO — A woman, who police say was drunk, was arrested after her car crashed into a house early Friday morning.

Just before 2 a.m., police received a 911 call from the owners of Windflower Court in the city’s Morganville neighborhood.

A vehicle crashed into their home, causing extensive damage.

When officers arrived, they found a white 2021 Acura had crashed into the first floor of the townhouse, leaving a 10ft by 10ft hole.

The owners were not injured.

The driver, a 41-year-old woman, was not injured, but an investigation determined that she was driving impaired.

She was processed at police headquarters and then released.

Members of the Robertsville Volunteer Fire Co. helped stabilize the vehicle and remove it from the house.

However, the Marlboro Township building inspector deemed the house uninhabitable at that time.
