A Jamesport woman was arrested Sunday on charges of driving under the influence of drugs on the Long Island Expressway, police said.

Suffolk police said Lizbeth Ildefonsa, 41, was driving a 2009 Honda west on the LIE when she stopped short near Exit 70 in Manorville, causing her car to be hit from behind just before 3:45 p.m.

She was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated with drugs. Ildefonsa's arraignment information was not immediately available Sunday night.
