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.
The footage shows a woman identified as Wilson as she's unable to walk to the patrol car without help.
Neither WIlson nor her baby were injured.
Wilson was arrested for suspicion of DUI and other charges. She was not given a field sobriety test.
According to court records, Wilson was released on her own recognizance on Wednesday and has pleaded not guilty to charges that include child endangerment and operating a vehicle while intoxicated, The AP reported.
