Suspect who slammed car into S.I. home pleads not guilty

The man accused of crashing his car in to a Staten Island home injuring two people has pleaded not guilty.  

22-year-old Charles Trainor was arraigned Saturday morning on multiple charges, including DWI and vehicular assault. According to the NY Post, Trainor told a criminal court judge that he was neither drunk nor high on prescription medication when he lost control of his car.

Trainor had told police that he was on Keppra seizure medication at the time of the accident, according to the Post.

On Friday morning, the two victims, including a five-year-old girl, were asleep on a pull-out couch when Trainor's 2010 Hyundai Elantra slammed into their house on Staten Island.

The car slammed into the house at about 4:10 a.m., according to FDNY officials.  Half of the vehicle was inside of the structure.

40-year-old Lisa Roman and her daughter Lenora were sleeping when the car barreled into the home at 5309 Arthur Kill Road in the Tottenville section. 

Roman suffered third degree burns on her upper body and her daughter sustained a fractured skull and eye-sockets, according to assistant district attorney Kirsten Kruger. Both victims were taken to Staten Island North University Hospital where they were listed in stable condition.

The cause of the accident is still under investigation.

This is the second time the Roman house suffered vehicle crash. 10 years ago Philip Cutler, 20, slammed his car into the home, then occupied by an ailing grandmother.
