A drunken driver drove the wrong way on a Staten Island highway this morning and crashed into a car — leaving one person dead, authorities said.
The boozed-up driver took a wrong turn near Richmond Road and wound up on the Staten Island Expressway just before 2 a.m. heading against the flow of traffic, police said.
He then collided with another car — killing his own passenger, police said.
All victims and the driver responsible for the accident were taken to either Richmond University Medical Center or Staten Island University North Hospital, cops said.
Charges are pending against the driver, police said.
