A Queens woman who Nassau police said broke the speed limit and swerved out of her lane in Greenvale early Christmas morning was charged with drunken driving under Leandra’s Law after a police officer learned she had a child in the car.

Police charged Luisa M. Santana-Justo, 29, of Woodhaven, with aggravated driving while intoxicated under Leandra’s law, driving while intoxicated, endangering the welfare of a child and multiple vehicle and traffic law violations in the 1:03 a.m. incident.
