An accident last month on Beacon Street led to injuries,
charges, and citations, according to a Brookline Police arrest report.
Tyler Korona, 25, of Enfield, CT, was arrested at 6:14 a.m. on Feb. 23, and charged with OUI liquor.
According the report, an officer was sent to a crash on Beacon Street near St. Paul Street between a car from Massachusetts and another from Connecticut with front-end damage at around 10:20 p.m. on Feb. 22.
The man driving the Massachusetts car told police he was stopped at a red light at the intersection when he was rear-ended. He was later transported to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center with neck and back pains.
The driver of the other car, Korona, spoke with officers and they alleged that his eyes were “glassy” and he was giving off “a moderate odor of an alcoholic beverage.” When asked for his license, Korona allegedly “did not reply or look” at the officer. Three additional times he was asked for his license and allegedly refused to answer and continued to look away.
Later, Korona allegedly began yelling and reportedly told officers that he was “responding to an emergency on Fisher Ave!” but wouldn’t explain the nature of the emergency.
Korona reportedly began complaining of neck pain and was put on a stretcher. The officers asked him if he had been drinking and he allegedly admitted to consuming some vodka but didn’t respond when asked how much he had to drink. Korona was also transported to Beth Israel, where he was later charged with OUI.
An officer, at the scene, looked over the evidence and came to the opinion that Korona was allegedly “operating in excess of the posted 30 mph speed limit,” according to the report.
“In viewing the accident scene, there was approximately 50 feet of tire/tread marks leading up to where Mr. Korona rear ended (the other car),” an officer alleged.
Korona was also cited for speeding and following too closely.
