According to the Cambridgeshire Constabulary, Tania Chikwature was driving with her 20-month-old son when she overtook a truck and failed to negotiate a traffice circle.

Her Nissan Qashqai was launched up the side of the roundabout and about 15 feet into the air before landing on its roof and colliding a the crash barrier.

Witnesses to the crash pulled the crying toddler, who was hanging upside down in his car seat, out of the wreckage, according to a police statement.

"At no point did she ask after the welfare of the child or refer to him," one witness told police.

Police say Chikwature refused a breath test and later had her blood tested at a hospital, where it was found to be three times over the legal limit for alcohol.

"Chikwature showed complete disregard for the safety and welfare of her child and other road users in her manner of driving. It is pure luck that nobody was killed that day," police spokesperson PC David Tudman said.

Chikwature appeared in court Monday after she pleaded guilty last month to dangerous driving and driving while under the influence of alcohol at a hearing last month.

She was sentenced to 26 weeks in prison and ordered to a fine of £115 ($145 US).
