A 40-year-old Elizabeth school board member has been charged with driving under the influence following a crash that occurred last month in Linden.

According to police, on Oct. 15th, officers responded to the intersection of Route 1 North and South Park Avenue around 3 a.m. for a report of a crash.

Police believe Daniel Nina was turning left from Route 1 North onto South Park, when his Kia collided with a Chevy driving south on Route 1.

The driver of the Chevy, only identified as a 56-year-old Roselle woman, was transported to Trinitas Hospital in Elizabeth, with minor injuries.

Police charged Nina with DUI, careless driving and was released pending an appearance in municipal court on October 16th.

Nina was sworn in as an Elizabeth Board member in January 2016.
