Allegedly Drunk Mom Plows SUV Into Her Baby Boy and His Dad
A La Puente woman is facing DUI charges after driving her SUV into her 1-year-old son and his dad, according to CBS Los Angeles.
The accident happened at the couple's home on Friday night. The unidentified woman left her SUV running, and it began rolling toward the man holding the baby. She rushed to stop the SUV but ended up hitting the gas instead of the brakes. She plowed through the garage, her baby and his dad.
The baby and his dad were pinned under the car, and the man was taken to the hospital for critical injuries. There's no word on how the baby is doing.
When the authorities arrived on the scene, they arrested the woman after she failed a sobriety test.
