New York mother charged with DWI and child endangerment

A New York mother has found herself in serious turmoil after allegedly driving and hitting a man who was walking with his young son. In addition to her allegedly hitting the two, she was said to have had her young child in the vehicle with her. She is not only facing charges for hitting the pedestrians, but she is facing DWI charges for allegedly being drunk while doing so.

The 38-year-old woman was said to have been driving her vehicle and attempting a left turn at the time of the accident. The two pedestrians were walking through the crosswalk when the woman allegedly hit the father with her vehicle. The woman allegedly admitted to her legal team about having one beer before the accident.

Although the woman admitted to the one beer, police officers suspected differently. They claim that she had signs of intoxication. The woman voluntarily submitted a blood alcohol test over a breath test because she believed the blood alcohol test was a more accurate determination factor. The results for her test are pending further investigation.

The woman has been charged with DWI and endangering the welfare of her daughter. Until her court date, or until evidence proves the woman was drunk, she may wish to explore all of her legal options. Such allegations and DWI charges can have a very negative impact on a person's life -- especially a mother. If the woman wishes to explore her legal options before heading into the New York court system, she may have a better chance of having a fair trial for her unfortunate DWI charges.
