An alleged drunken driver was arrested for allegedly crashing her SUV into a Nassau County police car, injuring two officers in Uniondale early Wednesday morning, authorities said.

Katie Kirk, 21, of Bay Shore, was driving a Jeep Wrangler on Oak Street at the entrance to Hofstra University when she rear-ended the patrol car at 3:45 a.m., police said.

The officers were taken to a local hospital for treatment of neck and back injuries.

Kirk was charged with driving while intoxicated and driving without a license.

She was arraigned Wednesday at First District Court in Hempstead.
