Alleged drunk mom overturns car
A woman was arrested early Wednesday on suspicion of drunk driving and child endangerment after allegedly running her car with her 4-year-old son inside into parked vehicles on a North Hollywood street and overturning it.

Officers initially brought in police dogs to search for other children near the scene of the 2:45 a.m. accident in the 5900 block of Whitnall Highway.

“Then we learned the other children were elsewhere,” said Sgt. Jimmy Chong, of LAPD’s Valley Traffic Division.

Officers found the woman’s 1-year-old and an infant at another address and a 10-year-old at still another, he said.

Chong said the woman was injured and taken to a hospital for treatment but has been released and booked. Her name was not immediately available.
