Accused hit-and-run driver found not far from Falls crash scene

NIAGARA FALLS – Police investigating a hit-and-run crash Saturday night said they discovered the missing driver standing outside her damaged car in the driveway of her home a couple of blocks away.

Debra E. Guarino, 43, of 77th Street, was charged with driving while intoxicated, leaving the scene of an accident and making an improper right turn.

Police reported Guarino blamed the driver of a truck she had hit for swerving into the path of her car. However, the driver of the truck said Guarino veered into his path while making a turn.
