A Sag Harbor woman was charged with driving while intoxicated after she ran her car into a utility pole, according to reports from a New York Criminal Lawyer. The driver and her two small children sustained injuries in the crash.
The 34-year-old mother was charged with an aggravated felony, DWI, and a misdemeanor, endangering the welfare of a child, following the accident, a New York Personal Injury Lawyer was told. In Southampton Town Justice Court, her plea was not guilty, sources told New York Car Accident Lawyers. She was released on $5,000 bail.
The woman lost control of her vehicle while driving in Bridgehampton. She swerved into the northbound lane and knocked over several poles, dropping live wires over the road. Authorities had to close the street for several hours.
The woman and her children, ages 2 and 6, were taken by Fire Department rescue workers to Southampton Hospital, where they were quickly treated and allowed to go. Grandparents claimed the children at the behest of county Child Protective Services workers. No one could reach the mother of the children for comment.
