Authorities say 19-year-old Nicholas Corsair was driving in Toms River shortly before 10 p.m. Tuesday when he hit a pole. Police charged him with DWI.

He was released from jail around 3 a.m. Wednesday.

Police say they were called to another crash around 7:30 a.m. in which a pickup truck rear-ended a car and took off. Corsair was identified as the pickup's driver and was arrested around 8 a.m.

He was charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence of a controlled dangerous substance.

His mother, 51-year-old Jacquelin Latronico was charged with allowing her son to drive while impaired.

It wasn't immediately clear if they had attorneys.
