EXCLUSIVE: A River Edge man was sentenced to 364 days in the Bergen County Jail and three years probation for crashing his car into a good Samaritan and two vehicles in Paramus while drunk.
Gregory Komporlis, 31, had been free on $50,000 bail since hours after his arrest last Dec. 14.
Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli said at the time that Komporlis was drunk when he caused the collision just after 2 a.m. in the northbound lanes of Forest Avenue near Norman Way.
A 21-year-old good Samaritan had gotten out to help another motorist who’d crashed her car into a utility pole when he and both vehicles were struck by a 2010 Volkswagen Jetta driven by Komporlis, the prosecutor said.
The good Samaritan sustained severe head and lower-extremity injuries, Molinelli said.
Superior Court Judge Eugene H. Austin sentenced Komporlis on the motor-vehicle assault conviction on Friday.
