NY Dr. convicted of teen's DWI death hurt in crash
CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. (AP) -- Authorities say a Buffalo-area doctor convicted of the drunken driving death of a skateboarding teenager has been injured in a crash involving a teenage girl who was intoxicated.
Police in suburban Cheektowaga tell local media that Dr. James Corasanti was a passenger in a car being driven by his secretary when it was hit by another vehicle on Route 33 late Thursday morning. Both were treated and released.
Officials say the 17-year-old Amherst girl driving the other vehicle was charged with driving while intoxicated.
The 58-year-old Corasanti was convicted in May 2012 of misdemeanor DWI but acquitted of manslaughter in the July 2011 accident that killed 18-year-old Alexandria Rice as she skateboarded on a suburban Buffalo road. Corsanti was released from prison in April after serving two-thirds of a one-year sentence.
