BRONXVILLE, N.Y. - A motorist with five active suspensions on his driver's license was stopped by police in Bronxville after he attempted to flee from the scene of a one-vehicle accident.
At approximately 9:22 a.m. on Thursday, June 1, a Beverly Road homeowner reported to police that she has observed a driver in a truck strike the wall in front of her home, who was then attempting to flee the area.
Police said that officers quickly arrived at the scene and the subsequent investigation into the incident determined that the driver, 30-year-old Lindenhurst resident Furkat Saidov’s license had multiple suspensions on it.
