A motorist driving while intoxicated on Staten Island lost control of his Chevy Astro minivan and caused an accident that sent nine people to the hospital.
The unidentified driver was traveling in New Dorp around 6:30 pm with his brother and two nephews when he jumped a curb onto a traffic island, striking a pedestrian. The minivan hit a light post and careened into a Mazda carrying two women. The Mazda was then forced into a Jeep Grand Cherokee. The event unfolded in front of the 122nd Precinct police station, and officers from the station helped the accident victims.
A total of nine people were taken to local hospitals, with the pedestrian in critical condition. The minivan driver was charged with New York DWI.
