Luis Delcid-Cardona, 19, was behind the wheel early on the morning of December 12 and lost control of his car on I-95  southbound  just past the Route 1 exit in Lawrence. The vehicle jumped the concrete curb and slammed into the back of a parked tractor trailer. Passengers Nicole Rodriguez, 20, Samantha Belliveau, 18  of Hamilton and Jonathan Rivas, 19, of Princeton all died in the crash.

The Hamilton resident fled the scene and was later found at a home in Lawrence. His lawyer, Robin Lord, during a December bail hearing, argued that snow and ice on the road played a role in the crash and her client ran from the scene to call police,  according to the Times of Trenton.

The indictment says he was under the influence of liquor and includes three counts of second-degree death by auto and one count of second degree leaving the scene of an accident, resulting in death. The Times reports Delcid-Cardona admitted to prosecutors he had 4 beers before he drove that night.
