Perinton, N.Y. (WHAM) - A Rochester woman was indicted by a Monroe County grand jury on multiple drunken driving charges for a wrong way crash on Rt. 490 East last November.

Marissa Pecora, 27, was indicted for DWI, DWI with BAC of .08 or higher, aggravated DWI and reckless driving. She had originally been charged with three counts of DWI, assault 3rd, reckless driving, no interlock, unlawful entering of an expressway, violation of conditional license, disobeying a traffic control device, wrong way on a one way, failure to keep right, and open container.

The charges stem from a crash around 1:50 a.m. on November 1 on Rt. 490 East.

According to the Monroe County Sheriff's Office, Pecora drove west in the eastbound lane and crashed into a tractor trailer between the Bushnell's Basin and Route 31 exits. Deputies say she was driving her grandfather's vehicle at the time.

The driver of the rig escaped before the truck became fully engulfed in flames.

Court documents show Pecora was arrested ten months ago in Farmington on DWI and aggravated DWI charges.
