YONKERS, N.Y. – A White Plains woman faced multiple charges, including alleged possession of the psychedelic drug PCP, after an accident on the Sprain Brook Parkway Tuesday, according to the New York State Police.

Christine D. O’Neill, 36, is charged with felony fourth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and a misdemeanor count of operating a motor vehicle impaired by drugs, police said.

O’Neill allegedly rear-ended another driver’s vehicle near milepost marker 1.5 on the Sprain Brook Parkway on Tuesday, according to police.
