An alleged drunk driver was arrested after he flipped his car on the Upper West Side early this morning.
Cops say the incident happened around 3:20 a.m. at W 83rd Street and Amsterdam Avenue. You can see surveillance video of the incident below, taken from the south side of 82nd Street—it's more tense than Black Swan. But for those who are impatient, skip straight to 1:50 and pay attention to the white car at the very top of the screen, on Amsterdam.
Suspect Washington Cordell, 24, was taken to St. Luke's Hospital after the incident. Cops say he "may have been cut off by a taxi, then struck several vehicles and overturned." In the surveillance video, there's no sign of him being cut off, but he does appear to be speeding in his 2016 Chevy Cruze.
Cordell—a resident of Troy, NY—was charged with a DWI and refusal to take a breathalyzer.
