A police officer in North Brunswick had his future planned out. He was moving up the ranks in the police force, on his way to becoming a captain. Eventually, he wanted to be the chief of a department. He had been on the force for 19 years, and it looked like everything was going in the right direction.
However, an impulsive decision derailed those hopes. The man was able to borrow a Dodge Viper, a very fast and powerful sports car. He then asked another officer if he wanted to go for a ride in the car, and the two of them took it out on the highway. There, they were intentionally speeding and committing traffic violations. The officer who had borrowed the car was behind the wheel when he lost all control of the vehicle. It left the roadway, slammed into a utility pole, and killed the other officer.
