Preschool teacher seriously injures man in DWI accident

At about 4:40 p.m. on Sept. 25, a suspected drunk driver hit a 62-year-old man who was standing in a parking lot in New York. The 38-year-old accused drunk driver collided with two parked cars before she hit the pedestrian. Sheriff's deputies arrived at the scene on Brook Hill Lane in Penfield and took the driver into custody.

Deputies spoke with a witness who confirmed that they had seen the driver strike the two cars and the pedestrian with her Honda Fit. The witness also told deputies that the accused woman was seen getting out of the driver's side of the Honda after the accident. After he was hit by the car, the injured pedestrian was transported to Strong Memorial Hospital for treatment of life-threatening injuries. He was in satisfactory condition by the following morning.

Authorities took the Honda driver to Monroe County Jail and charged her with driving while intoxicated, reckless driving and first-degree vehicular assault. She posted $1,500 cash bail the next morning. According to reports, the alleged drunk driver is employed as the lead preschool teacher for a non-profit organization that works with medically fragile children. The driver's employer put out a statement after the accident explaining that the driver was placed on unpaid administrative leave.

People who have been injured in an accident caused by a drunk driver often face lengthy and expensive hospital stays. They might want to have the assistance of an attorney in seeking compensation for medical bills and other losses through a personal injury lawsuit filed against the at-fault motorist.
