Police say a Long Island woman has been charged with driving while intoxicated after striking another vehicle and then fleeing while her 5-year-old son remained in the car.

Suffolk County police arrested Jessica Lazarus, 39, of Centerport at her home Monday afternoon.

They say her car struck a Toyota, which in turn hit a Jeep.

The drivers of those vehicles were treated for non-life threatening injuries. The boy was not harmed and was turned over to a family member.

Lazarus also was charged with leaving the scene of an accident with injury and endangering the welfare of a child.

It was not immediately clear if she had a lawyer.
