A Wyandanch woman will face a judge Sunday for allegedly driving drunk and high on drugs when her car flipped over and seriously injured a passenger in the vehicle, New York State Police said March 1.
Keira Corbin, 20, was charged with vehicular assault, driving while intoxicated, driving while ability impaired by drugs, unlawful possession of marijuana and operating a motor vehicle with a suspended license.
Corbin, police said, was driving north along the Meadowbrook State Parkway around 5:20 a.m. on Saturday when her Chevy Cruz left the roadway along the exit ramp for the Southern State Parkway in North Merrick. Investigators said the car struck a highway guide rail before overturning and coming to rest in the woods along the side of the parkway.
An unidentified passenger – who police said is an 18-year-old woman from Freeport – was seriously injured in the crash. She was taken to Nassau University Medical Center in East Meadow with head injuries.
Corbin is due to be arraigned Sunday morning at First District Court in Hempstead.
