Thankfully, due to multiple calls to 911, the police were able to stop and arrest a drunken Queens man driving the wrong way on the Long Island Expressway before somebody was injured or killed. The offender was pulled over and arrested on Tuesday near Exit 52 in Commack about 2:20 a.m. According to a report by the New York Daily News, he was caught driving eastbound on the westbound side of the Long Island Expressway. The driver, Ivan Ceron, 23, will face numerous charges including drunk driving, driving an unregistered vehicle and driving below the minimum posted speed limit.
Unfortunately, drunk driving often results in an accident where victims sustain serious, even fatal, injuries.
