According to the report, Officer Joseph Heuneman found a bloodied Timothy Tuite and 24-year-old Corinne Dicapua, of Keansburg,
after the crash. The car belonged to Dicapua but neither admitted to being the driver.
According to the report, a witness told Heuneman he saw a white Honda fail to negotiate a sharp bend on the road and went over the curb of the grassy median on the southbound lane of Lafayette. The car continued along a stretch of grass past the Welcome to Morristown sign and where the historic canon is on display and “violently came to an abrupt stop when it struck a tree,” the report said.
The report said the pair indicated they had been returning from a wedding and Tuite admitted to being the driver of the vehicle and Dicapua admitted to allowing Tuite behind the wheel.
Dicapua refused medical attention three times throughout the evening and once transported to Morristown Medical Center, Tuite required sedation after becoming “agitated and uncooperative” with staff, the report said.
Superior Court Judge Philip Maenza authorized a blood draw for testing and authorized a summons for assault by auto, the report said. Tuite was issued citations for driving while intoxicated, reckless driving and failure to maintain lane, the report said. Dicapua was charged with allowing an intoxicated person to operate a motor vehicle, the report said.
