A three-vehicle pile-up that injured a little girl has led to the arrest of a driver on suspicion of DWI.

The accident happened at 820 Hempstead Turnpike shortly after 3:00 p.m.

Police said the suspected drunk driver was in an SUV heading westbound on Hempstead Turnpike. A green car with the family of five was heading eastbound. The SUV went to make a left turn on Claflin and slammed into the car.

The car slammed into a pole and a 4-year old girl was ejected out of the rear window.

She landed in a nearby parking lot.

Officials said her injuries are not life-threatening.
