On December 31, 2012 at 4:30 a.m. a car left an icy roadway and crashed into Jamaica Bay in Queens, NY. Pregnant 25-year old Dominique Jamison, a passenger in the car driven by Denise Finley, 32, was killed in the accident. Ms. Finley admitted drinking vodka and cranberry juice before she got behind the wheel of the vehicle. She was arrested for DUI and driving without a license.
Drivers under the influence are notorious for creating scenes of carnage and destruction. And more often than not, it is an innocent bystander who falls victim. An auto accident apparently caused by a DUI motorist on Memorial Day in Long Island left a home in shambles and the elderly owner shaken.
