By kcora on

The 25-year-old Jets linebacker Dylan Donahue was taken into custody after reportedly causing a wrong-way crash at the Lincoln Tunnel Monday morning.

According to authorities, a Port Authority police officer on the Weehawken side of the tunnel saw a Dodge Charger - driven by Donahue - go around traffic cones and enter the center tunnel against traffic at approximately 2 a.m.

Police said Donahue crashed into a jitney bus that was occupied by 15 people on board. EMS transported four passengers to Hoboken University Medical Center with minor injuries.

Authorities charged Donahue with DWI and reckless driving after he failed sobriety and Breathalyzer tests.

The linebacker is next due in court on Mar. 13th in Weehawken.

Police said Donahue's unidentified passenger was charged with disorderly conduct and obstruction.
