COLTS NECK, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say a northern New Jersey man was drunk when the car he was driving crashed, killing his father.

Monmouth County prosecutors on Monday charged 35-year-old Andrew Halder of Woodcliff Lake with vehicular homicide, reckless driving, driving while intoxicated and displaying a fictitious inspection sticker.

Prosecutors say Halder and his father, Gary, had left a golf club on Aug. 30. when Halder’s car struck a curb trying to enter Route 18 in Colts Neck. The car flipped and rolled, ejecting the father. He died at a hospital.

Police say Halder had a blood-alcohol level above New Jersey’s legal threshold of .08.

It’s not known if Halder has a lawyer who can comment on the charges.
