Rear-End Accident Could Lead to Sixth DUI

A man is facing his 6th charge of DUI after a multi-vehicle crash that happened at the beginning of the month.

According to police in Newtown Square, at approximately 2”24 p.m. on Wednesday, October 1st, officers responded to a three-vehicle accident in Newton Square that happened at West Chester Pike and Barren Road.

According to investigators, Thomas Anthony Cleary, 36, of Upper Darby struck two other vehicles with his 1989 Chevrolet Silverado while they were waiting on a red traffic light.

Officers at the scene determined that Cleary was either under the influence of alcohol or drugs and was considered unsafe for being behind the wheel. Cleary was transported to Springfield Hospital for treatment of injuries and for blood testing.

Upon checking the status of Cleary’s license by computer, police found that his license was currently suspended due to five additional convictions of DUI. Police also found that there was a warrant for Cleary’s arrest for having violated probation.

Cleary was placed under arrest for DUI by police and was transported to George Hill Correction Facility where he is being held in lieu of bail being set.
