NEW YORK (AP) - A New York City woman has been charged with drunken driving after authorities say she ran a stop sign and crashed into a marked police cruiser.

Police say Jacqueline Perez has been arrested on drunken driving and vehicular assault charges following the early Saturday morning crash on Staten Island.

Investigators believe the 23-year-old Staten Island woman was behind the wheel of a 2001 Hyundai Sonata when she ran a stop sign while making a left turn.

That’s when they say she struck a marked police cruiser, forcing it to collide with a tree.

Two officers were taken by ambulance to a hospital and treated for minor injuries. Police say Perez declined medical attention at the scene.

It wasn’t clear if Perez had an attorney to comment on the charges.
