We’d be dead wrong to laugh at this one, right?
A drunken driver slammed his Cadillac into a traffic signal, a median and a parked car in Brooklyn early Saturday, killing his girlfriend who was in the backseat, cops said.
Nyron Isaac, 32, was driving north on Fourth Ave. when he struck the traffic signal between 25th and 26th Sts. in Sunset Park around 5:52a.m., officials said.
Isaac’s girlfriend, Keisha Nelson, of Fort Greene, Brooklyn, was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
Witnesses said when he got out of the car, Isaac was spinning in circles and said he didn’t know who was driving.
Isaac and his 21-year-old female cousin, who was riding in the backseat with Nelson, were taken to Lutheran Medical Center in serious but stable condition, cops said.
He was arrested and charged with manslaughter, vehicular manslaughter, aggravated unlicensed operation of a vehicle and driving while intoxicated.
Isaac, an unemployed maintenance worker, was supposed to be home watching his 10-year-old son, according to his wife, Tennile Isaac, 29, who has been seeking a divorce.
She had warned him not to drive the Cadillac, which she was transferring ownership of to him, because it was uninsured, she said.
Instead, he went to give his new girlfriend a ride, leaving their boy home alone, she said.
Got to be more careful…
