NEW YORK (AP) - Authorities say a Bellport man on Long Island has been charged with driving while intoxicated after his car struck and critically injured a woman in Coram.

Suffolk County Police said Floyd Patterson was arrested after the 11:30 p.m. Wednesday crash. Police said the unidentified woman was taken to Stony Brook University Hospital, where she was listed early Thursday in critical condition.

It was not immediately known who will represent the 56-year-old Patterson when he appears in court in Central Islip Thursday.

The crash remains under investigation and police have asked anyone with information to contact the Vehicular Crime Unit at 631-852-6555.
