A 66-year-old woman from Kingston, NY was charged with aggravated DWI and vehicular assault on May 29th after a month-long investigation into an April 26th multicar crash that injured four people. Elizabeth M. Kelly was driving on Sawkill Road when she crossed into the northbound lane and hit a Honda driven by Betty Sibus, 80. Sibus’ vehicle then hit a Mazda driven by Yvonne Brown, 51. Carol Adkins, 50, who was driving a Lincoln, stopped to avoid the crash and her car was rear-ended by a Hyundai driven by Theresa Handleman, 48. Police officers said that they suspected that Kelly was driving drunk and took a blood sample. She was not initially charged because of her medical treatment and the ongoing investigation, but a blood test revealed that Kelly had a 0.18% BAC. Kelly was charged with vehicular assault and aggravated DWI, as well as a misdemeanor DWI and a traffic infraction of failure to keep right. She was arraigned in Ulster Town Court and released to reappear on June 11.
