8 Injured, 1 Critically, in I-95 Accident Involving 2 Suspected Drunk Drivers
Two BMW drivers were arrested for allegedly driving drunk during a four-vehicle pileup that left eight people injured, one critically, on Interstate 95 in the Bronx on Sunday night.
Both BMWs were traveling northbound and allegedly speeding near the Baychester Avenue exit when a white BMW collided with a black Kia sedan. The Kia then careened into a Honda CRV and the Honda then crashed into a grey BMW.
The Kia driver suffered critical injuries in the crash. Seven others suffered minor injuries.
Both BMW drivers were charged with DWI and reckless driving. The first is 31-year-old Christopher Coats of Peekskill, who was driving the grey vehicle. The driver of the white vehicle is 23-year-old Jahmeik White of the Bronx.
Two lanes and an off-ramp of I-95 were blocked following the crash and delays continued into early Monday morning rush hour.
An investigation into this crash remains ongoing.
