A 26-year-old man has admitted to driving drunk and killing a pedestrian near the Westchester County Center.
Elmsford resident Glen Robinson pleaded guilty this week to one count of second-degree vehicular homicide for hitting and killing Susan Benjamin-Bailey, of the Bronx in August last year, when she was on her way to work.
According to Westchester County District Attorney Anthony Scarpino, Jr., shortly after 6:30 a.m. on Aug. 24 last year, Robinson was driving while intoxicated in White Plains, and Benjamin-Bailey, 57, was on her way to work.
At the intersection of Tarrytown Road and Central Avenue, Robinson drove his Chevrolet Cruze into Benjamin-Bailey as she crossed the roadway in front of the County Center.
Benjamin-Bailey was taken to White Plains Hospital where she died from her injuries. Scarpino noted that Robinson drove into the brick garden bed surrounding the clock tower, completely damaging the structure and the clock as well.
Robinson is scheduled to be sentenced on Wednesday, April 29.
