A 26-year-old man has been indicted on a vehicular manslaughter charge after killing a pedestrian in Westchester while allegedly driving drunk, the District Attorney announced.

Elmsford resident Glen Robinson has been indicted by a Westchester County grand jury for allegedly hitting his car in front of the County Center, killing 57-year-old Susan Benjamin-Bailey early on Saturday, Aug. 24 in White Plains.

On Tuesday, Dec. 10, Westchester County District Attorney Anthony Scarpino, Jr., announced that the 26-year-old Robinson has been charged with two counts of vehicular manslaughter, two counts of driving while intoxicated and one count of criminally negligent homicide.

Scarpino 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 is scheduled to appear back in court on Tuesday, Jan. 7.
