A Seaford woman has been accused of driving drunk, crashing into another vehicle and trying to flee the scene in the Hamptons over the weekend.

Southampton Town Police arrested Monica Hartman and charged her with driving while intoxicated and leaving the scene of an accident with physical injury.

Police said the 23-year-old woman was driving on Montauk Highway in East Quogue when she crossed over the double yellow line and ran into the side of an oncoming vehicle on Sunday night.

Three passengers in her vehicle and the two people in the other vehicle were all treated for non life-threatening injuries.

Hartman ran away but was found hiding in the nearby woods by New York State police.

She was arraigned at Southampton Town Justice Court.
