February 25, 2019

REVERE, Mass. (AP) — Massachusetts State Police say a drunken driver who rolled over her car left a child behind at the scene of the crash.

Authorities say the 37-year-old Revere woman faces nine charges, including one count of operating under the influence of alcohol and two counts of child endangerment. WCVB-TV reports troopers were called to the scene just after midnight Sunday to reports of a single-vehicle crash.

Witnesses told police the vehicle had three occupants: the driver and two children. Police say the driver left the scene in a bystander’s vehicle with one of the children, leaving the other child behind. The woman was later arrested at an area hospital.

State police say both children suffered severe, but not life-threatening injuries.

The driver is scheduled to appear in court Monday.
