Suffolk DA: 'Actual driver' charged in car-into-house crash

Prosecutors say the young woman accused of driving while intoxicated and crashing into a Huntington home will no longer be facing any charges, and instead

WOODBURY - Prosecutors say the young woman accused of driving while intoxicated and crashing into a Huntington home will no longer be facing any charges, and instead her now-former boyfriend has been indicted in the crash.Sophia Anderson, 21, was originally charged back in May with slamming a red convertible into a home while two elderly sisters slept inside. The change-up comes after prosecutors say an investigation proved she wasn't behind the wheel at the time. Investigators now say her ex-boyfriend, 23-year-old Dan Sajewski, convinced her to tell police she was driving. Sajewski has a long rap sheet of probation violations and drug charges, including one instance where he sold ecstasy to an undercover cop.Prosecutors say they were able to prove Anderson wasn't driving based on DNA evidence from the air bags and because her injuries were consistent with sitting in the passenger's side.A grand jury indicted Sajewski on charges of driving while intoxicated, reckless endangerment and making false statements.

Anderson is due in court tomorrow to be arraigned on conspiracy and obstruction charges.
