A sus­pect­ed drunk dri­ver, Daniel Christo­pher Hyden (44), has been arrest­ed in con­nec­tion with a dead­ly crash on the Low­er East Side dur­ing Fourth of July celebrations. 

Hyden alleged­ly drove a truck through an inter­sec­tion, mount­ing the side­walk and strik­ing pedes­tri­ans, includ­ing chil­dren, in Cor­lears Hook Park. 

The crash trag­i­cal­ly result­ed in three fatal­i­ties, with author­i­ties expect­ed to file addi­tion­al charges against Hyden.

This inci­dent has tak­en a shock­ing turn as it’s revealed Hyden is a licensed sub­stance abuse coun­selor and author of a self-help book titled “The Sober Addict: A Prac­ti­cal Guide to Liv­ing with Addiction.” 

Pub­lished in 2020, the book posi­tions Hyden as an “ex-pro­fes­sion­al addict” with exten­sive per­son­al experience.

Hyden’s alleged actions raise crit­i­cal ques­tions about the role of addic­tion coun­selors in pre­vent­ing such tragedies and the chal­lenges they face in main­tain­ing their own recovery.
