Police: Huntington Station Man Drove Drunk With Two Kids in Car

Duhaney Duncan is arrested after minor crash Saturday night, police say.

A Huntington Station man was arrested Saturday night after police say he was driving drunk and involved in a minor crash with his two young children in the car. 

According to police, Duhaney Duncan, 42, was driving a 2005 Dodge pickup westbound on the shoulder of Jericho Turnpike in Huntington Station at 7:55 p.m. when he struck a Nissan minivan that was parked in front of the Brooklyn Pizza restaurant, located at 881 Jericho Turnpike. 

Duncan and his two children, ages 1 and 2, were not injured, police said. 

Duncan is charged with aggravated DWI with a child 15 years old or younger–a felony under Leandra's Law, DWI, and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child. 

Duncan was being held at the Second Precinct and is scheduled to be arraigned Sunday at First District Court in Central Islip.

The children were released to their mother.

Ms Diaz. A glass in wine? He admitted to drinking 3 24oz cans of Budweiser. Let's assume he's being completely honest. That's a six pack, with his one and two yr old daughters in the car. And to Ms Darcy, what does where the other car was parked have anything to do with it. The vehicle could have been stopped in the middle of the road with a broken axel. He is sitting in Jail with a 75,000 Bond. He also had a suspended drivers license. BK 13. Is my comment earlier still a little harsh?

Mr. or Ms. Pack as the case may be:Where, in the above article does it state he drank 3 24 oz cans of Bud? If you have inside information we would like to hear it. Absolutely, I believe in parking sensibly to avoid getting hit by less than perfect drivers. And yes, he SHOULD be prosecuted under Leandra's Law.

Ann that's Mr Six Pack, who blindly believes everything the cops report, mainly because he's one himself.

I know the owner of the minivan. The minivan was parked legally, which should have nothing to do with a drunk driver operating a MV with a suspended license with his one and two year old in the pick up truck as he drives recklessly down jericho turnpike at 8pm.
