The taxicab driver charged with drunken driving after a collision in Lincroft a week ago was found dead in his Red Bank apartment Monday morning, borough police said.
Police were summoned to the Monmouth Street home of John Curtis, 39, after his landlord found him dead at about 8:25 a.m., said Captain Darren McConnell.
McConnell said there were no signs of foul play and “no obvious signs” of suicide. An autopsy was scheduled for Tuesday, he said.
Curtis was among three people taken to hospitals on April 23 after he ran a red light at Half Mile Road while heading eastbound on Newman Springs Road and crashed into a vehicle driven by a Howell man at about 8:30 p.m., Middletown police said at the time.
McConnell said he did not know the details about Curtis’ injuries, “but they were considered serious enough that he went to the trauma unit at Jersey Shore” Medical Center in Neptune.
The 55-year-old driver of the second vehicle and the 30-year-old passenger in Curtis’s cab were also taken to hospitals.
In addition to the DWI charge, Curtis was charged with assault by auto and other violations, police said.
