NJ Men Attempt Black Ice DUI Coverup

The New Jersey slip-and-fall lawyers at Breslin and Breslin are reporting that two NJ men were arrested on Saturday after police said they tried to cover up a drunken car crash by making black ice. Brian Byers, 20, allegedly blew through a stop sign at an intersection, then hit a guard rail before fleeing the scene, according to a CBS report. He returned hours later with 20-year-old Alexander Zambenedetti. Byers then allegedly proceeded to pour water at the intersection in an attempt to create black ice, police said. "I've never seen anything like this and I've been here 21 years," Sgt. John Lamon of the Sparta Police Department told CBS2. Added Sgt. Dennis Proctor to 1010 WINS: "The original driver of the first vehicle that crashed and left the scene made an admission that ... their intent was to blame it on the ice so they could collect insurance for the vehicle, for the damage to the vehicle." Investigators said Byers was drunk at the time of the crash. "You could actually see the skid marks underneath the water they had just put there, so we knew that they had dumped this water over the top of where he lost control of the vehicle rather than the vehicle losing control on the ice itself," said Proctor. Byers faces charges of DWI, leaving the scene of an accident and disorderly conduct for creating a dangerous condition by purposely icing the intersection, according to NBC 4. Zambenedetti was arrested on DWI charges as well after he failed a sobriety test.
