Nassau police arrested an Islip Terrace woman early Friday and charged her with driving while intoxicated after they said the car she was operating ran into a bicyclist in Hicksville.
Katrina M. Yevoli, 30, of Carleton Avenue is scheduled to be arraigned Saturday on charges of driving while intoxicated, operating a motor vehicle with more than .08 percent alcohol, leaving the scene of an auto accident with injury and third-degree reckless assault.
Police said she struck a 49-year-old bicyclist from behind while traveling east in a 2007 Toyota on Old Country Road at Raymond Street at 5:45 a.m. The victim sustained a broken clavicle and sprained ankle while Yevoli, police said, left the scene and was later stopped by a witness to the incident.More coverageComplete coverage: Suspected DWI crashes, arrests on LI
