On Dec. 10, a drunk driving accident in New York City injured seven people including the driver believed to be responsible. The accident took place in Herald Square at about 9:50 p.m. when the 34-year-old driver jumped a curb on 34th Street. Five pedestrians were struck, and a passenger in the accused woman's vehicle was also injured.
According to investigators, the pedestrian accident began when the driver was headed eastbound on West 34th Street in a Mustang convertible. After rear-ending a Subaru SUV, the driver tried to perform a U-turn against traffic and ended up colliding head on with a Chevrolet Impala. The impact caused the Mustang to travel backwards, hit a taxicab, jump a curb and then crash into the window of a clothing store.
