Police officers were called to the scene of a car accident at the corner of Connecticut and West Beach Streets. Two cars were involved in the mishap: a Chevrolet with damage to its front bumper and a Volkswagen with damage to its rear bumper.

The Long Island police officers asked for the licence and registration of both drivers. As the police officers were speaking with the drivers, they noticed that the driver of the Chevrolet did not smell of alcohol but his speech was slurred and he did not walk straight. The officers asked the driver of the Chevrolet to walk on a line on the side of the road but the man walked in a zigzag pattern instead.

The police officers arrested the driver of the Chevrolet and brought him to police headquarters for an alcohol breath test. AT the precinct, the breath analyzer test showed that the driver’s blood alcohol level was only 0.03. The friends of the driver who were also passengers in the car came to the police station and informed police that the driver spoke with a slight slurring and his gait was naturally uneven. They assured the police that their friend was not driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

According to reports that reached a lawyer this is a case about two intoxicated males from Manhattan who are driving a vehicle despite of being under the influence of alcohol. The said car was a red Chevrolet which was allegedly parked while the driver went out to get something from a store while the other male companion stayed inside the car. The incident happened at about 7 o’clock in the evening of October 2, 1971.

The two people involved in the said car accident were Wenceslao, who was the driver and Marzulli, the passenger who allegedly made the vehicle move while parked in front of a store. According to the story, Wenceslao parked the red Chevrolet in front of the store to grab something. While parked, Marzulli stayed inside the vehicle and waited for Wenceslao. Based on accounts that reached a source, Marzulli was seen trying to get to the driver’s side of the vehicle. He was seen somewhere in the middle of the passenger side of the car when it began moving backwards. It was also accounted that at that time, there was no engine being started was heard in the vicinity. It was also noted that the street was levelled enough for a car or any vehicle to stay parked at any given time. The car began moving until it hit another car which was parked a few feet away from where the red Chevrolet was originally parked. Wenceslao immediately came out of the store just in time to see the accident happened. He apparently ran to his car and confronted Marzulli on what happened. After the brief exchange of words between the two men, Marzulli went back to the passenger’s seat and Wenceslao got on the Chevy and drove off, leaving the scene of the accident.

Meanwhile, Police Officer Mulvihill was in the area and saw everything that happened. He then followed the red Chevrolet driven by Wenceslao and stopped the men three blocks away from the scene of the accident. The men were taken to the station and were charged with leaving the scene of an accident wilfully. Marzulli testified that we was indeed intoxicated at that time but claimed he did nothing to make the car move while it was parked. He said that he tried to stop the car, stepping on the accelerator instead of the break in the process, after he felt that it started to move by its own. But his claims were contradicted by the police officer as well as by Wenceslao. It was fortunate, according to a Personal Injury attorney that nobody was injured in the said incident.

Seymour Gutin while driving north on the East River drive in Manhattan with his wife had their windows open. It was a dry day that is why they had it down. After passing the 95th street, he notices pieces of concrete came in through his open window and one of them hit his eye. Near the 96th street intersection was the time he realized that he was bleeding. He hurriedly drove to the 116th street, which was the nearest exit and asked a policeman for help. It was found out by a reporter, that the police officer drove Mr. and Mrs. Gutin to the hospital where they removed his eye because of the extent of the damage.

The car was examined by the police, and they found four pieces of broken concrete. A suit was filed against Frank Mascali & Sons, Inc. They are the company that was incharge of the construction of an overpass between East 92nd Street and East 99th Street along the East River Drive. Checking on the contract, a Lawyer said that they were paid to make sure of the safety in the highways with respect to the construction and maintaining the traffic. There was a power house that was in that location which was part of their contract to demolish and use any product that can be used as filling for the road. Some of the by-products needed to be broken to smaller pieces before they can use it.

A Queens policeman assigned to the corner where the crane was used to break the concrete to smaller pieces testified that they utilized the ball to pound on the concrete to break it. A witness mentioned that the officer could cite a similar incident two weeks before what happened to Mr. Gutin because he had it recorded. He said he had warned the operating of the crane and some supervisors about the method. In the examination Frank Mascali & Sons, Inc.’s construction engineer confirmed the use of the ball to get the product they needed. He was not presented in the trial. In the trial, the concrete pieces found in Mr. Gutin’s car were also entered into evidence. The defense presented a receipt to counter the allegations. The receipt said that the delivery was delayed because the crane was not working. There were three signatories in the receipt but not one of them was the one who wrote that the delay was due to the malfunction of the crane. The crane operator signed a statement that he was operating the crane on the day of Mr. Gutin’s accident and noticed a blue car, the color of Mr. Gutin’s car near the intersection. The operator though says he can barely recall it. He testified though that he wouldn’t sign the document unless he was sure.

The driver had a history of mostly minor traffic violations. The majority of which were moving violations although he was charged with driving while intoxicated several years before the accident. He was driving without a license at the time of the injuries. Although unknown with certainty at the time of this accident, it is suspected that many of the victims in this accident were not United States citizens.
