EASTON, Pa. -

A man involved in a two-car crash seven months ago is facing charges because didn't have a valid license, or permission to drive the car he was operating, officials said.

Carvin Jero Williams Jr. steered the brown 2008 Chevy Impala he was driving into the path of Kevin R. Huff's maroon 1998 Chrysler Cordoba as he was trying to make a left turn from Larry Holmes Drive onto South 3rd Street in Easton around 4:55 p.m. April 26, officials said.

The Impala suffered "disabling damage" to its front end, and Williams claimed the accident was Huff's fault, but footage from a police surveillance camera at the intersection showed otherwise, officials said.

Police discovered Williams was driving with a suspended license, and when the owner of the Impala, Quinlyn Q. Jones, arrived on the scene, she told authorities that she filed a complaint against Williams three weeks earlier saying that he was using her car without her permission, officials said.

Williams, 48, of 215 Michael Koury Place, Easton, and 1835 Nolan St., Philadelphia, was arraigned early Thursday morning on charges of unauthorized use of a vehicle, driving with a suspended license and failing to yield the right of way while making a left turn and committed to the Northampton County Prison on $1,000 bail, according to court documents.

A preliminary hearing is set for 9 a.m. Dec. 5.
