81-year-old woman sentenced for DWI crash into restaurant

Posted: Updated:

An 81-year-old woman was sentenced for crashing into a popular Mamaroneck restaurant last year while she was under the influence.

Authorities say Roseanne Cassano was drunk when she reversed out of a parking space and slammed into Enzo's restaurant at 451 Mamaroneck Ave.

Nine people were injured, including four who were in critical condition.

Enzo's was forced to close for three months during repairs.

Cassano was sentenced to five years' probation, and her license is permanently revoked.

Cassano spoke in court, admitting she took a Xanax and drank half a glass of wine before leaving the restaurant.
