New York woman accused of drunk driving in crash involving bus

Sometimes, when people are involved in a traffic accident, they panic and respond in a way that may be out of character for them. However, failing to remain at the scene of an accident can have serious consequences. In fact, a woman in New York now faces multiple criminal charges, including drunk diving, after police say she fled the scene of an accident. 

The incident that led to the 36-year-old woman's arrest reportedly happened just before 8 a.m. on a day in mid-July. Reports claim that the woman, driving a van, struck the rear of a school bus containing two adults and three children. She allegedly left the scene and struck a trailer attached to a pickup truck soon after. No one was injured in the incidents.

Police say that a witness followed the woman to a parking lot. When he confronted her, she reportedly punched him in the face. Police responded to the scene and took the woman into custody. She is charged with DWI, leaving the scene of an accident and harassment.

Despite the drunk driving allegations the New York woman is facing, it is unclear what the woman's blood alcohol content was at the time of the accident or how it was determined. Because of the potential consequences of a conviction, the woman may want an experienced criminal defense attorney guiding her throughout the process. Such a professional can carefully examine the evidence against her and the details leading up to her arrest, and help determine the most appropriate response.
