Cops: Drunk Driver Crashes Car Into Huntington Home

Sophia Anderson of Brooklyn charged with DWI.

A Brooklyn woman was arrested Monday for driving while intoxicated after she crashed her vehicle into a Huntington house.

Police say, Sophia Anderson was driving her Mercedes south on Browns Road when she failed to turn at the Southdown Road t-intersection. Anderson’s vehicle went through the intersection and crashed into a home located at 200 Southdown Rd. before coming to a stop in the backyard at 4:05 a.m.

A 90-year-old woman and her caretaker were inside the home but were not injured. Anderson, 21, was transported to where she was treated and released.

Anderson was arrested and charged with DWI. She was scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday at the Fourth Precinct.

She refused the breath test and they didn't take blood. Legally, there's no proof she was drunk. The refusal gets her an automatic license suspension. That's it.. Case closed . On to civil court. That's the system folks....

It's no secret that police are tough on DUI's and DWI's. There is no "protected class" as stated above. If someone is caught driving drunk, they get put in jail right away and bail must be posted. If their lawyer gets them off the charge, it has nothing to do with the police. What does have me concerned and is more dangerous, is the complete disregard of traffic laws. Red lights, stop sign, speed limits are mere suggestions. Courtesy is non-existent as is right of way. Drivers are rushing each and every time they get behind the wheel, if you happen to be in their way or slow them down, you get an obscene gesture. It's dangerous out there.

not an angel, it's just that when they get in a car on long island their behavior is, lets say, different than most other places around the country. i am disrespecting the way people drive which is warranted considering the number of accidents and road fatalities we have here.

I hope the courts are strick with this case. Driving drunk is discusting and the consequences should be harsh. People need to think before they do things. Your horrible decision to drink and drive can and will effect innocent people on the road. http://jokeofthedayblog.blogspot.com
