A Farmingdale man was arrested and charged with drunken driving Monday morning after he rammed into a parked Jeep and caused damage to two other vehicles, Nassau County police said.
A patrol officer who was nearby dragged Garrett O’Reilly, 23, from his burning vehicle around 3 a.m. at the intersection of Jefferson and Lafayette roads in Farmingdale, police said.
The officer reported that O’Reilly “had a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage and his eyes were glassy and bloodshot,” a police spokeswoman said.
O’Reilly’s 2013 Nissan Rogue struck a parked 2016 Jeep Cherokee, which hit a parked Toyota RAV4. The Rogue then hit a 2017 Honda Pilot, police said.
He was admitted to a hospital for treatment of unspecified injuries and will be arraigned when medically feasible on a charge of driving while intoxicated, and vehicle and traffic law violations, police said.
