Gravesend’s Steven Calandrillo Arrested For Mowing Down Woman In Deadly Drunk Driving Accident


An early morning accident on Saturday left a woman dead after an allegedly drunk driver mowed her down before colliding with a tree.

Daily News reports:

Police said 25-year-old Steven Calandrillo was driving a Ford Fusion along Shore Parkway near Bragg St. in Sheepshead Bay just after 2 a.m. when the car veered onto the sidewalk — mowing down [53-year-old] Karin Eberts-Ayub. The car then hit a tree, officials said. The Stillwell Ave. woman died at the scene.

Paramedics found Calandrillo, a resident of Gravesend, unconscious behind the wheel and rushed him to Lutheran Medical Center for treatment.

Eberts-Ayub was fondly remembered by those who knew her as an enthusiastic painter and chef, who cooked extra turkey on Thanksgiving to give to neighbors.

Calandrillo was charged Saturday night with drunken driving, manslaughter and criminally negligent homicide.
