New York woman arrested for intentionally causing car crash

A New York car crash that police believe was intentional sent two people, one of them a pedestrian, to the hospital on Feb. 27. Police arrested a 23-year-old Albany woman in connection with the incident, which began at about 3:45 a.m. at the intersection of Delaware Ave. and Leonard Place in Albany.

Officers said that after an altercation with another person at Delaware Ave. and Leonard Place, the 23-year-old got in her car and intentionally rear-ended the other person's vehicle before speeding off. She continued traveling south on Delaware Ave. until she lost control of her vehicle and collided with a lamp post. As she entered a gas station parking lot, the woman's car struck a pedestrian and a parked car. The driver of the first car the woman reportedly struck followed her down Delaware Ave. into the gas station parking lot. The 23-year-old threatened the occupants of the that car with a knife. She fled on foot before police arrived at the scene.

Paramedics transported the pedestrian, a 41-year-old man, to Albany Medical Center for treatment of a broken leg and other non-life-threatening injuries. The 23-year-old woman went to St. Peter's Hospital with a leg injury. After she received treatment, police arrested her and charged her with driving while intoxicated, second-degree vehicular assault and second-degree menacing. She also received citations for several moving violations.

Though hit-and-run drivers may face serious charges for their actions, the injured victims must pursue other avenues to obtain compensation. People who suffer injuries in hit-and-run car accidents may be able to file personal injury suits against the drivers or owners of the vehicles that struck them.
