Phoenix DUI Suspect Crashes Car, Flees, Leaves 8-Year-Old Son at Scene
Attention Valley residents: Stop driving around shitfaced with your kids in the car.
For the second time this morning, we've been hit with a story about a person driving drunk with a child in the car. The latest: 34-year-old Carla Flanagan.
Flanagan was arrested Saturday after drunkenly crashing her car near 45th Street and Baseline Road. Her 8-year-old son was in the car.
But Flanagan didn't just get drunk and crash her car with her kid inside -- after the wreck, police say she fled the scene of the accident, leaving her son behind.
