LEONIA, N.J. -- A crash in the parking lot at Leonia High School involving current and former students Tuesday morning sent a Jeep rolling and left two teens in custody on drug-related charges, authorities told Daily Voice.
Two Jeeps Cherokees were headed toward one another when the driver over a gray 1999 model turned left and struck a silver 2015 model around 7:45 a.m., Capt. Scott Tamagny said.
The 2015 Jeep got knocked into a parked car and rolled onto the driver's side, he said.The driver of the 2015 Jeep -- identified as former LHS student Marc Helewa, 19, of Edgewater -- apparently had been smoking marijuana earlier and was charged with DWI and being under the influence of drugs, Tamagny said.
Heleway had two passengers with him -- both current LHS students -- including 18-year-old Luke Rambharose, who was also arrested and charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, the captain said.
The driver of the 1999 Jeep, a student at the high school, wasn't charged, he said.
Responders included Leonia police and firefighters and an EMS unit from Englewood Hospital and Medical Center.
