An alleged drugged driver was arrested after New York State Police said she led Troopers on a chase, rammed several patrol cars and was found to have a stash of drugs on her over the weekend.
Troopers responded to a 911 call of Chevrolet Cavalier being driven erratically southbound on the Sagtikos Parkway, then blocking traffic on the Southern State Parkway westbound at 12:38 p.m. Friday, police said.
The driver, 44-year-old Kim Trebing of Deer Park, ignored Troopers as they flashed their lights and sirens in an attempt to pull her over, police said.
Instead, the suspect weaved across all three lanes of traffic, forcing other drivers to avoid her before she hit one of the patrol cars, police said.
After the initial crash, Trebing’s car struck a center median guardrail, re-entered the roadway and struck two other patrol cars while trying to flee, police said.
Once Troopers stopped the Cavalier, Trebing was found to be incoherent, unable to speak or stand and appeared to be highly intoxicated, police said.
Her vehicle was impounded after she was found to be in possession of cocaine and prescription pills, police said. She was hospitalized after being arrested.
Trebing was charged with reckless endangerment, criminal possession of a controlled substance, criminal mischief, unlawful fleeing and driving while ability impaired by drugs.
Her bail was set at $40,000 cash or $10,000 bond. She is due back in court Thursday.
