State police: 4-year-old dies following Flanders crash; mother charged with DWI
State police say a 4-year-old girl died after she was injured in a car crash in Flanders on Thursday.
They say the girl’s mother, 34-year-old Amy Weselowski, caused the crash. The Riverhead woman admitted to police that she took Suboxone and Adderall.
Weselowski was also driving with a suspended license at the time of the crash.
News 12 also learned that according to court records, 4-year-old Gracelyn Perkowski was not in a child safety seat at the time of the crash.
Gracelyn was a student of St. David's School. School director Rose Horton says her classmates made a banner in her honor.
Authorities say Weselowski is on supervised release following the crash. She faces multiple charges, including aggravated DWI with a child.
So far, there are no upgraded charges. The investigation is ongoing.
Weselowski is due back in court on Wednesday.
