Drunk Pelham mom crashed car with kid aboard, police say

Police say a mom got drunk and crashed her car in Mount Vernon Friday - with her 8-year-old son aboard.

According to police, 27-year-old Megan Kearney crashed her car into parked vehicles and slid into a driveway ditch at 11:30 p.m. Kearney?s son reportedly asked witnesses for help. No one was hurt in the accident. Kearney, who police say refused a Breathalyzer test, is charged with DWI, leaving the scene of an accident and endangering the welfare of a child.

Kearney?s attorney says his client wasn't drinking that night and she never left the accident scene. Kearney?s son is staying with relatives. Police say about 10 women have been charged over the past six months with drunk driving while their children were in the car.
