A 24-year-old Katonah woman is facing a misdemeanor charge of driving while intoxicated following a four-car accident on Route 35 Thursday evening.
Three people, including the woman police arrested, were transported by ambulance to
Northern Westchester Hospital in Mount Kisco for non-life-threatening injuries, according to
Bedford Police Lt. Jeffrey Dickan.
The accident occurred at about 5:30 p.m., when the accused's eastbound vehicle crossed the center median and struck three westbound vehicles near the Anderson Road intersection.
At least three of the vehicles sustained heavy damage and were towed, Dickan said. It took
first-responders about an hour and a half to clear the scene. Several other agencies, including the Katonah Fire Department, the
Katonah Bedford Hills Volunteer Ambulance and
Somers Ambulance, responded.
The woman is due in court Feb. 13 to answer the DWI charge and two traffic violations. Police are awaiting toxicology reports to determine a blood-alcohol level.
