The first paragraph says it all "A Hempstead Man was arrested in East Meadow on Saturday after he allegedly drove while intoxicated on Southern State Parkway, causing his three passengers to be injured, New York State Police said. " You should all read it again. No where does it say the driver was arrested at the scene of the accident which was on the Southern State. When the injured were transported for medical attention Nassau's Finest conducted an investigation while the driver was being treated at the hospital realizing he was drunk at the time of the accident. Where is the issue. Please - take a chill pill.. He was charged while being treated at the hospital.... Good investigation by the police...

My mother said she saw the same accident...at least 8 police cars, CVS's sign was down and the car was overturned. We haven't been able to find any news source reporting details of this accident.

Yes four people injured in that crash. The driver died on December 6, 2012. All involved grew up together in Hempstead. Very sad, and unfortunate. RIP Errol Brown
