YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: A 22-year-old motorist was stoned when she crashed her car into the divider coming off the George Washington Bridge onto Route 4 with her two children — one three years old, the other five months — in the car, Fort Lee Police Chief Keith Bendul said today.
Alisha Leon of Highland Falls, N.Y., was being held on $50,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail, charged with two counts of child endangerment.
Fort Lee police also notified the state Division of Child Protection and
Permanency, Bendul said.
No one was injured in Friday’s 11:30 a.m. crash, he said.
A relative picked up the youngsters.
“While being treated at the hospital, it was believed that she maybe under the influence of a controlled dangerous substance and a toxicology test was requested,” the chief said. “Leon presented indications that she was under the influence of marijuana.”
