A woman was arrested for drugged driving after she flipped her car with her two children on Sunrise Highway in Bohemia, Suffolk County authorities said.
Darlene Graham was driving her Nissan Altima eastbound when she lost control of the car, which overturned and landed in an upright position near the center median by Lakeland Avenue at 8:30 a.m., according to the county sheriff’s office.
Deputy sheriffs found the 29-year-old Ronkonkoma woman to be under the influence of drugs with her children, ages 3 and 6, in the vehicle, authorities said. All three were treated for minor injuries.
Graham—who also had two warrants for her arrest—was charged with endangering the welfare of a child, unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, driving with a suspended registration, driving while ability impaired by drugs and driving while intoxicated with a child, a felony under Leandra’s Law.
Child Protective Services was notified and the children were released to the care of a family member.
