A Hauppauge woman was arrested for drunk driving early Tuesday morning after her car collided with a county vehicle, injuring both her and the other driver.
The Suffolk County Police Department said Michael Maxwell, a district attorney investigator, was driving a county-owned 2008 Ford Explorer east on Route 347 shortly after 1 a.m. when he collided with a 2004 Toyota Sequoia that had been going south on Mount Pleasant Road. After crashing with the Ford, the Toyota struck a building on Mount Pleasant.
Police did not specify which driver caused the crash.
Maxwell, 52, was pinned inside the Ford, police said, and Emergency Services Section officers extricated him. Both he and the Toyota’s driver, 20-year-old Amanda Dellegar, were treated for non-life-threatening injuries at Stony Brook University Hospital.
Police arrested Dellegar and charged her with driving while intoxicated.
Attorney information for the defendant was not immediately available. Police said she would be arraigned at a later date.
Anyone with information about the crash is asked to call the SCPD’s Vehicular Crime Unit detectives at 631-852-6555.
