A Floral Park teen pleaded guilty Thursday to driving under the influence and killing a Westbury woman.
Police say Arhum Tanveer was high while driving over 100 mph on Jericho Turnpike last December.
The Nassau district attorney says the 19-year-old slammed into the 30-year-old woman who was backing her car out of a driveway. They say the teen kept driving until his car flipped over.
Tanveer is due back in court this month.
If convicted, he could face 15 years behind bars.
