New York fans hear actress Bynes unfit for drunk driving trial

Troubled actress Amanda Bynes may have been in a psychiatric ward since July 2013, but in late September, her trial proceeded without her. She was scheduled to appear in court on charges of driving while intoxicated in April 2012, but a lawyer for the former child star told the judge that she was mentally unfit to stand trial on the criminal counts. She was under long-term psychiatric treatment under a conservatorship at the time of the hearing.

Lindsey Lohan's mother charged with DWI

Actress Lindsey Lohan's 50-year-old mother, Dina Lohan, has been arrested for DWI in New York after blood alcohol testing allegedly showed hers to be over twice the .08 percent legal limit. Media sources indicate that Lohan claimed to have been injured during the course of her arrest, but recanted this allegation after emergency personnel are said to have evaluated her and found no such injuries. She has been scheduled for a Sept. 24 appearance at the Nassau County 1st District Court.

Marijuana activist killed by alleged drunk driver

New York residents might be startled to hear about the case of a 34-year-old woman who was killed in a car accident by a driver accused of being over the limit. The woman was an activist who advocated legalizing marijuana in Colorado. She had spent years of her life claiming that alcohol was more dangerous than marijuana.

Serious injuries caused by tractor-trailer accident

New York state police reported that a woman from Wayne was allegedly hit by a truck driver in late August 2013. The 39-year-old woman was driving a Subaru east on Interstate 84 when a big-rig truck driving in the opposite direction apparently lost control and swerved sharply. The truck then came across the median and hit the woman's vehicle directly.
