AUS Indian woman has been charged with driving while intoxicated after she was involved in a crash that injured five people, including herself, in New York City.

Dilmeet Kaur, aged 21, of the Floral Park area, was driving a 2019 BMW X3 northbound on Lakeville Road at around 11 pm on May 16, 2023.

She collided with a 2004 Nissan SUV being driven by a 34-year-old woman who was travelling southbound.

Police said the Nissan had two women trapped inside when Nassau officers arrived at the scene.

When police arrived, they immediately began “to render aid to all victims involved in the collision”

Her arraignment was held on May 17, 2023, at First District Court, Hempstead.

Kaur’s arrest comes just a few weeks after a drunk driver travelled the wrong way on a Long Island expressway and struck an Alfa Romeo, killing two 14-year-old boys.

Drew Hassenbein and Ethan Falkowitz died after Amandeep Singh crashed his Dodge Ram into them.

They were pronounced dead at the scene, while two other boys, aged 16 and 17, who were also in the car suffered internal injuries. They were in a stable condition in hospital.

After being struck by the Dodge, the Alfa Romeo sedan crashed into a Volvo XC90 SUV with a 49-year-old woman and 16-year-old boy inside.

Both suffered minor injuries.

Captain Stephen Fitzpatrick, commanding officer of the Nassau homicide squad, said:
