SELDEN, N.Y. (WPIX)
A Suffolk County father was arrested Wednesday afternoon after he crashed his car while he was drunk driving and had his three children in the vehicle.
Kenneth Danielsen, 41, of Somerset Street in Centereach, was driving a 2009 Dodge car westbound on Hawkins Road in Selden when he rammed into the rear of a 1998 Ford pick-up truck on Ruland Road at about 7:20 p.m.
Danielsen's three children -- two 12-year-olds and a 10-year-old -- were passengers in the vehicle. No one was injured in the crash.
Danielsen was slapped with three charges: the felony of aggravated driving while intoxicated with a child passenger less than 16-years-old under Leandra's Law, aggravated driving while intoxicated and driving while intoxicated.
He will be arraigned later Thursday at the First District Court in Central Islip.
