Elmsford resident Glen Robinson appeared in White Plains City Court on Thursday, Oct. 10, where he was charged for his role in the death of 57-year-old Susan Benjamin-Bailey early on Saturday, Aug. 24 in White Plains.

Westchester County District Attorney Anthony Scarpino, Jr., said that shortly after 6:30 a.m. on the day of the crash, it is alleged that Robinson was driving while intoxicated in White Plains.

At the intersection of Tarrytown Road and Central Avenue, it is alleged that Robinson drove his Chevrolet Cruze into the brick median in front of the Westchester County Center plowing into a pedestrian and killing her.

Benjamin-Bailey was a Bronx resident on her way to work in White Plains when she was killed. Robinson’s vehicle also rammed into the raised planter which held a standing clock, damaging all of it. Benjamin-Bailey was taken to White Plains Hospital, where she later died.

Robinson will return to court Nov. 14.
