A traffic accident in Bridgewater Township in the early morning hours of Nov. 1 has led to multiple charges filed against a Springville man, including a second offense driving under the influence and driving under the influence on a license already suspended for a previous DUI. Documents filed in district court indicate that on that date, state police were notified of a car into a utility pole and, while en route to the scene, received further information that the driver was refusing medical treatment. At the scene, reports state, police discovered Joshua Robbins, Springville, leaning against his disabled vehicle because he was too intoxicated to stand, according to emergency personnel who had arrived to render aid. Further information provided by police allege that Robbins admitted to having been drinking, but had no recollection of how the accident occurred, and that he was unable to attempt a field sobriety test due to his condition. Robbins was taken from the scene to Endless Mountains Health Systems for blood testing, state police report, then released into the custody of the hospital for treatment of a scalp abrasion suffered in the accident. Robbins reported to the police station the following day for processing. According to court records, test results from the police lab later indicated Robbins’s BAC to be .20. He also faces charges of driving without a registration or insurance, in addition to multiple DUI charges and numerous traffic violations.
