A Monroe man has been arrested on drug related charges following two car crashes in New York. State Troopers responded to Route 312 in Southeast by the I-84 ramp last week on a report of a car off the roadway.
An investigation determined that 44-year old Nuno Xavier hit another car on the highway, and later hit a guard rail. He fled both accidents before going off the roadway. It was determined that Xavier was under the influence of heroin and in possession of 3.6 grams of heroin.
He was issued tickets to appear in court on the 29th.
