A driver ejected from his SUV in Wilmington yesterday morning has been charged with driving under the influence.
James Stirparo, 27, of Shipley Road, lost control of his 1995 Jeep Cherokee as he traveled southbound on I-495 at approximately 2:30 a.m. Stirparo was approaching the Route 141 off ramp when he struck the right and left guardrails.
When Stirparo was ejected, he landed in the center lane of southbound I-495. As he attempted to get to his knees, an oncoming tractor trailer passed directly over top of him, missing Stirparo entirely.
He was taken by medics to Christiana Hospital, where he was listed in stable condition with a head injury.
Stirparo was also cited with expired tags and failure to have insurance identification.
if your the cop do you say "ta da" before you give him the ticket........
