Green Township, Ohio (The Weekly Vice) - Lauren Story, a 21-year-old Ohio mother was arrested Sunday after she drove drunk, got into a wreck and then attempted to drive away in the victim's car, leaving her 19-month-old daughter behind.
According to Green Township Police, Story was intoxicated at nearly three times the legal limit when she rear ended another motorist in a Walgreens parking lot just after 9 p.m.. Story's 19-month-old daughter was also in the vehicle at the time of the accident.
Investigators say the two drivers got out to survey the damage, however when the victim exited his vehicle, Story jumped in his car and attempted to flee the scene - leaving her daughter behind.
Police believe Story was so intoxicated that she mistook the victims automobile as her own, abandoning her daughter in the process.
Police say the victim had to chase down the woman, so she couldn't leave - and was still inside the car when officers arrived. Story's blood alcohol level registered at .205.
Story was booked into jail on charges of child endangering, driving while intoxicated, leaving the scene of an accident, failure to maintain reasonable control of a motor vehicle and a seat belt violation. She was released on her own recognizance after attending a bond hearing on Monday.
