The 24-year-old man who seriously injured four Neshaminy High School girls in a drunken head-on crash in Northampton Township last year pleaded guilty on Thursday, Jan. 6, 2022, to all charges.
Shane Brolly is accused of crossing into opposing traffic to pass a vehicle on the night of March 27, 2021, leading to the head-on crash. As police investigated the crash, they located opened and unopened beers in Brolly’s truck and detected an odor of alcohol on him.
Blood tests results showed Brolly’s blood-alcohol content was 0.21 percent, more than twice the legal limit to drive, and an investigation found that Brolly had been drinking for several hours prior to the 10:10 p.m. crash in the 300 block of Bridgetown Pike in Northampton Township, Deputy District Attorney Robert D. James said in court on Thursday.
The investigation also found that Brolly was refused service at a Philadelphia bar because he was heavily intoxicated, and his friends pleaded with him not to drive, even offering him a ride and a place to stay.
