07/19/08 Drunk Cos Cob Woman Smashed Cars From Greenwich To Port Chester Then Goes To Greenwich Hospital With A Bleeding Head

Police: Drunken driver fled crash scene, then hit 3 more cars

Journal News

A driver allegedly fled an accident in Greenwich, Conn., before striking three parked cars in Port Chester, but told police she didn't realize it when they later found her sitting in her car, bleeding from the head.

Yvonne Leon of Cos Cob, Conn., 57, was charged with driving while intoxicated and fleeing the scene of an accident, misdemeanors, said police Lt. James Ladeairous.

Police in Greenwich alerted their Port Chester counterparts Thursday afternoon that a white Acura Integra had fled an accident. Moments later, village police got another call that the same car was seen smashing into cars on North Main Street in the village. A village officer spotted the Acura, with a flat tire, in the parking lot of Cafe Mirage.

Leon was inside.

An ambulance was called and paramedics bandaged her head. She refused to take a breathalyzer test, but police noticed the smell of alcohol.

She was released without bail because she was still bleeding and had to be taken to Greenwich Hospital. She is due in court Monday.
