BRIARCLIFF, N.Y. (AP) — Police report a second wrong-way accident in Westchester County on the same day a NYPD detective was killed in a similar crash.
Neil Prabhu, of Ossining, was charged with DWI after police say he crashed into another car while driving the wrong way on Route 9A in Briarcliff around 10:30 p.m. Friday.
In the Briarcliff collision, police say Prabhu’s Chevy Tahoe crashed into another vehicle near the Taconic entrance. The Journal News says one person suffered non-life threatening injuries.
Police say Prabhu traveled the wrong way for about a mile and a half.
It wasn’t clear if he had a lawyer.
