NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Police say an off-duty cop is facing drunk driving charges for a crash that left his partner in a coma.
It happened Friday on the Bronx River Parkway near the Cross Bronx.
Authorities say Officer Rafael Casiano, who works in the East Village as a housing cop, lost control of his personal vehicle, hit a divider and flipped over.
He suffered back injuries but his passenger, who happened to be his partner, suffered serious head injuries.
Casiano is also facing a vehicular assault charge.
In a separate incident, another off-duty cop was arrested for DWI Saturday morning in the Bronx.
Police say Kleaburgh Carvajal is also charged with leaving the scene of an accident and refusing to take a breath test.
