Cops probe possible alcohol-related crash

Po­lice found al­co­hol at the scene of a one-vehicle crash on Wood­haven Road that claimed the life of a Bris­tol man early Sunday.

Jose Manuel Perez-DeJe­sus, 39, was pro­nounced dead at the scene after flip­ping his 1984 Ford pickup truck over a guard­rail on the east­bound side of the ex­press­way at the Knights Road exit shortly after 2 a.m., said Sgt. Al­bert Gram­lich of the ac­ci­dent in­vest­ig­a­tion di­vi­sion.

No oth­er in­jur­ies were re­por­ted. 

Po­lice found an un­spe­cified type of al­co­hol­ic bever­age in­side the truck, but have not de­term­ined if the driver was un­der the in­flu­ence at the time of the crash. ••
