Child Sustains Traumatic Brain Injury in Car Accident, Mother Charged December 31, 2009
A woman who drove under the influence of strong prescription drugs and failed to fasten her children’s seat belts has been charged in connection with a car accident she caused that injured both her children, according to ABC’s WQOW 18 news website. Investigators believe that the Wisconsin mother put both children in car seats but stuffed the buckles behind the seats rather than fastening them. In the accident, which occurred last April, one of her children was ejected from the vehicle and sustained a traumatic brain injury. A crime lab report reveals that the mother had three prescription drugs in her system when the crash occurred, one of which was used to sedate surgery patients.
