Man Crashes into Police Car, Charged with DWI

An alleged drunk driver from the Bronx was arrested Friday after he allegedly crashed into a New York State Park police car on Ocean Parkway, state police said.

Robert Pierro, 29, was arrested at the scene, police said, and charged with driving while intoxicated.

State police said two officers were performing a traffic stop on Ocean Parkway at 3 p.m. when a 2003 Saab, driven by Pierro, struck the police car from behind. The force of the collision caused the police car to roll over, causing non-life-threatening injuries to both officers inside, police said.

Pierro will be arraigned at First District Court in Hempstead.
