Playing Baby Found Dangling Upside Down Inside Drunk Mom's Burning Car After Crash: Cops

An Ohio mom has been arrested after police say she drunkenly crashed her car with her 4-month-old inside.

Ohio State Highway Patrol says Brandy Wilson, 35, can be heard in dashcam footage repeatedly asking troopers where her son is at the time of her arrest on May 17.

The boy, police say, was in his car seat hanging upside down in Wilson's car, which had burst into flames.

Trooper Sean Eitel of the Ohio State Highway Patrol told WCMH he spotted a car swerving in Granville, about 30 miles outside Columbus, at about 9:30 p.m.

“Her vehicle was so out of control, it was like it was just a pinball,” Eitel said.

In disturbing dashcam footage, the car hits a curb then a pole before overturning and bursting into flames.

According to the OSHP, Eitel jumped from his cruiser, extinguished the fire and pulled out the unharmed baby. 

"He was upside down in his car seat, held by the car seat belt,” Eitel said.
