A pedestrian was injured after a suspected drunk driver crashed into a parked vehicle, which then collided with the pedestrian, in Wyandanch on Saturday, November 16.
Police say that 33-year-old Tasena Jennings, of West Babylon, was driving northbound on North 20th Street in a 1999 Lincoln Navigator when she struck a parked 2003 GMC with an occupant inside at around 7:10 p.m.
The GMC then struck 19-year-old Cyasia Forney, of Bellport, who was hospitalized at Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center in West Islip with minor injuries.
Police say that Jennings fled the scene and was later found on Conklin Avenue shortly after 8 p.m. Officers determined that she had been driving with a 4-year-old boy in the vehicle when the crash occurred – neither she nor the child suffered injuries.
Another 19-year-old woman was inside of the GMC, but she was not injured.
Jennings has been charged with driving while intoxicated, aggravated driving while intoxicated with a child passenger 15 years or younger, endangering the welfare of a child, leaving the scene of an accident with an injury, and two counts of criminal contempt.
