BOSTON -- A Boston firefighter has been charged with drunken driving after being involved in a car crash that seriously injured another driver.
Vernon Allen pleaded not guilty Monday and was released on his own recognizance.
Police say the 43-year-old Allen broadsided another car after that car ran a stop light in West Roxbury at about 2:30 a.m. Sunday.
The driver who was hit suffered significant injuries.
The arrest comes as city officials and the firefighters union battle over random drug and alcohol testing following the deaths of two firefighters last year. Boston news media reported that autopsy results showed that one firefighter was drunk and another had cocaine in his system when they died in a restaurant fire.
