Alleged drunken driver sends woman to hospital

A man was arrested and a woman was injured after a drunken driving accident, police say.

Police say John Zeppieri, of New Rochelle, was driving drunk Tuesday night on Shore Road when he swerved into oncoming traffic and hit two cars in the opposite lane.

One of the victims, a 48-year-old female, was taken to Jacobi Medical Center in stable condition.

Police say the suspect's car was overturned during the accident, and he unsuccessfully attempted to flee the scene.

Zeppieri is facing a DUI charge, as well as several other charges.
