A woman of Sag Harbor was charged with driving while under the influence after crashing into a utility pole in Bridgehampton, police sources told a Long Island Criminal Lawyer. Both the driver and her two young children were injured in the crash.
The woman, 34, was charged with felony aggravated driving while intoxicated and second-degree endangering the welfare of a child, a misdemeanor, following the accident on Millstone Road. She pleaded not guilty, according to New York Criminal Lawyers, in Southampton Town Justice Court and was released on $5,000 bail.
Police sources informed Long Island Criminal Lawyers that the woman was driving a 2007 Land Rover south on Millstone Road in Bridgehampton when she lost control of the vehicle near Loper’s Path. The car rolled over the northbound lane and ran into a pole. The pole and two other poles fell into the road, spreading live wires over the road and closing the street for several hours.
Bridgehampton Fire Department Rescue workers took the woman and her children, ages 2 and 6, to Southampton Hospital, where they were treated and released, according to New York Criminal Lawyers. The children were placed with their grandparents by county Child Protective Services workers. The mother of the children could not be reached for comment.
