OCEANSIDE, N.Y. — Police arrested a 43-year-old woman for allegedly driving under the influence with three children in the car on Long Island Friday night.
A patrol officer was searching the Oceanside area for a car that left the scene of an accident on West Park Avenue and Indiana Avenue when he saw it pull into a driveway at 275 Links Drive W.
When Eileen F. Danon, who lives at the address, emerged from the car, officers determined she’d been drinking and arrested her.
Danon had three children, ages 6, 9 and 11, in the car with her at the time of the accident. They were left with a neighbor.
Danon is charged with three counts of DWI (including Leandra’s Law), three counts of endangering the welfare of a child and and leaving the scene of the accident. She will be arraigned Saturday in Hempstead.
No injuries were reported in the accident.
