A pregnant woman was walking with her 11 year old son on a Stoughton sidewalk this past weekend, when she was struck by an out of control car being driven in reverse. The mother was able to save her 11 year old by telling him to run to safety according to a story in the EnterpriseNews.com.
The driver of the car that careened in reverse across the street was arrested Sunday night by Stoughton police after she allegedly failed field sobriety tests. The driver has pleaded “not guilty” to five counts including motor vehicle homocide while under the influence of drugs and alcohol.
Following her arraignment in Stoughton District Court on Monday, the accused driver was held on $500,000 cash bail.
