[Via the Long Beach Herald – Teenager struck by alleged drunk driver]
“A Long Beach man was arrested on Monday night and charged with driving while intoxicated after he allegedly struck a 15-year-old girl, pinned her underneath his vehicle and dragged her for nearly an entire block before leaving the scene. “
Alleged drunk driver? He was either drunk or not.The fact that he hit and ran is good enough to lock him away for a long time.
“Cregeen said that police located the car along the 500 block of East Beech Street, and arrested the driver just before 11 p.m.…Cregeen said that the victim, a student at Long Beach High School whose name was not released, was transported to Nassau University Medical Center with serious injuries and was admitted to the hospital’s pediatric intensive care unit. NUMC spokeswoman Shelley Lotenberg said on Tuesday that the teen was in critical but stable condition.” [Long Beach Herald – Teenager struck by alleged drunk driver]
