WOODBURY - Wrong-way drivers could soon face felony charges after about 20 crashes have occurred on Long Island in recent months. Several have been deadly.
A bill sponsored by state Sen. Charles Fuschillo has been approved by the state Senate.
The bill would make driving the wrong way a felony called "aggravated reckless driving."Officials say drivers could face up to four years in prison.
The bill will now go to the state Assembly.
