At 2:30 A.M. this morning, November 10, 2016, a wrong way driver was stopped and arrested on the Long Island Expressway travelling westbound in the eastbound HOV lane in excess of 90 M.P.H.

Christina Sandolo, a 30 year-old female, of Coram, New York, was driving a Nissan Altima, when she was observed by Deputy Sheriff Thomas Young near Exit 62. He was able to quickly stop the vehicle. The subsequent roadside interview indicated the operator was intoxicated. She was arrested at the scene and charged with Driving While Intoxicated, Reckless Endangerment and multiple vehicle and traffic charges. She will be arraigned today at First District Court in Central Islip.

Deputy Sheriff Young’s swift intervention averted a potentially fatal motor vehicle crash.
