Suffern man sentenced for head-on DWI crashPosted: Updated:
A Suffern man convicted of driving drunk in a head-on crash will spend five years in prison.
Police say Jonathan Elwell, 36, seriously injured another driver on Route 202 in Ramapo in 2015. He then took off running and hid in the woods after the accident.
Elwell was found guilty in September 2017 of numerous charges including felony assault and driving while intoxicated.
The victim in the case had numerous injuries and can’t walk without the aid of a cane.
Elwell has got into more trouble while awaiting his trial when police say they found a dozen small bags containing cocaine and heroin in his car during a traffic stop in 2016.
