A 37-year-old woman is behind bars after crashing into another vehicle while allegedly driving drunk, injuring numerous people and then running from the scene, said the Suffolk County Police.

Candice Giorlando, of Selden, was arrested following the incident that took place around 8:47 p.m. Sunday, May 5, said the Suffolk County Police.

According to police, Giorlando was driving a 2011 Dodge Durango westbound on Route 25 when she crashed into a 2001 Jeep at the intersection of Blue Point Road, police said.

Giorlando allegedly fled the scene on foot and was apprehended by Sixth Precinct officers. After being taken into custody, Giorlando ran from officers and was caught a short time later, police added.

The driver of the Jeep, Sean Sears, 41, and two passengers, Michelle Connor, 34, and Mia Sears, 3, all of Selden, were transported to Stony Brook University Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. Giorlando was not injured, Suffolk County Police said.

Giorlando was charged with DWI, leaving the scene of a crash with physical injury and escape, in addition to two traffic violations. 

She was held overnight and is scheduled to be arraigned at First District Court in Central Islip on Monday, May 6.
