CORAM - Police say a suspected drunken driver from Coram faced a judge today after leading officers on a chase and crashing into a patrol car.

According to police, they tried to pull Luigi Fusco over last night, but he took off on the Long Island Expressway, crashing at exit 51. They say he then tried to get away again, but was caught after hitting a police cruiser.

Investigators say Fusco had been driving on Caleb's Path and Motor Parkway in Brentwood with no headlights.
