Check Out The 21 Year Old Cutie Who Drank 15 Drinks And Drove Directly Through An Entire House
A Long Island prosecutor said today that a preliminary field test indicated that the Brooklyn woman who crashed through a house had consumed about 15 drinks before the accident. Police arrested 21-year-old Sophia Anderson following the crash Monday at 4 a.m. in Huntington. Anderson is accused of DWI after her red Mercedes-Benz CLK 320 in the rear of 96-year-old Helen Indiere’s once-tidy home. The car smashed through the home, ending up in the backyard. She suffered scrapes and bruises, while an unidentified passenger was not injured. Indiere who was inside the house and her caretaker were miraculously not injured. Anderson pleaded not guilty on Tuesday. Bail was set at $50,000. A Nassau County prosecutor said a preliminary field test at the crash scene indicated a blood-alcohol reading of 0.30. Each alcoholic drink raises the level by about 0.02. The legal limit is 0.08. Anderson’s lawyer questioned the validity of the sobriety test. Authorities estimated that Anderson was driving “at least” 40 to 50 mph down Browns Road when she got to the flashing red lights at the T-intersection with Southdown Road. Instead of turning right or left, she went straight onto the front yard and punched sedan-size holes through Indiere’s house as the woman and a home-health aide slept inside. The car slammed into a cypress tree, and its rear wheels landed atop some shrubs. “It sounded like a wrecking ball,” said neighbor Kimberly Steinberg. The 42-year-old woman said she ran outside and heard people yelling and glass breaking. “I thought it was a fire,” Steinberg said. “All I saw was a red glow. I heard people making noise and glass breaking.
