A drunk driver is being blamed for a three-vehicle accident that left four people injured in Rochester, New York, last week. Reports from The Wall Street Journal indicate that the crash happened at around 9:30 PM last Thursday night on the eastbound lanes of the inner loop off of Interstate 490.

Reports from New York State Police state that a 38-year-old Rochester woman was driving her vehicle the wrong direction along the interstate when she struck another car driven by a 28-year-old man from Batavia, New York. The impact caused the man’s car to then collide with another vehicle.

The woman was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital in serious condition where it was later determined she was under the influence of alcohol during the accident. The Batavia man was also taken to Strong Memorial Hospital, where he was last listed in satisfactory condition with a broken femur, as wheel as head and facial injuries. Two occupants of the third vehicle involved suffered minor injuries.

The drunk driver now faces charges of driving while intoxicated as well as vehicular assault.
