    Drunken Driver Hits Parked Cars, Narrowly Misses People

    A man driving with a blood alcohol content more than three times the legal limit hit several parked cars in East Windsor, narrowly missing people who scrambled out of the way, according to police.

    East Windsor police said Jordan DeSousa crashed his pickup truck into a number of others in the parking lot of Geissler's Plaza on Bridge Street around 4 p.m. He then struck five other vehicles down the street behind Maine Fish Market.

    Officers arrived to find five heavily damaged cars behind Maine Fish and two others at Geissler's Plaza, according to police. Four had to be towed. Three pedestrians told police they were standing near their cars and had to jump out of the way to avoid being hit.

    Police found DeSousa in his pickup truck. A breath test revealed his blood alcohol content to be more than three times the legal limit to drive.

    He was charged with driving under the influence, reckless driving, evading responsibility and three counts of first-degree reckless endangerment.

    Police said no one was hurt.
