Criminal complaints of driving to endanger and leaving the scene of an accident have been issued against a 69-year-old Gloucester man.
At 8:44 p.m. Tuesday, Thomas Riquier, of Juniper Road, allegedly struck the guardrail on Route 128 northbound several times after nearly colliding with another driver at Exit 14, the exit for Route 133 to West Gloucester and Essex.
The other driver followed him, calling the police, until Riquier pulled into his own driveway.
The witness told police Riquier was stumbling from the car, so when police got no response from knocking on the door, they went inside. They found Riquier with blood on him, but paramedics determined that he did not need to be taken to the hospital.
