MOUNT PLEASANT - Today marks the fourth anniversary of the worst wrong-way crash in Westchester's history.

On this day in 2009, eight people were killed when Long Island mom Diane Schuler drove the wrong way for nearly two miles on the Taconic State Parkway while under the influence of alcohol and drugs.

Schuler then slammed head-on into an SUV, killing three of its passengers, herself, her daughter and her three nieces.

The only survivor of the crash was Schuler's son, Brian.
