Two police officers were injured when a Long Island woman accused of driving drunk crashed into their unmarked cruiser overnight.

It happened around 9:50 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 4 in Huntington Station.

The woman, Katerina Hirasekova, 42, of Huntington, was driving a 2019 Volkswagen SUV northbound on Maplewood Road when she crashed her vehicle into the rear of an unmarked police car that was stopped at a red light, according to Suffolk County Police.
