DUNBAR, W.Va. -- Police in West Virginia say a woman was overdosing on heroin when she crashed her car into a restaurant with her 2-year-old son in the backseat.
News outlets report 28-year-old Kristin Tippett is charged with child neglect creating risk of injury.
On Tuesday, Dunbar police found Tippett passed out in the driver’s seat after her car went across a Wendy’s drive-thru lane before crashing into the building in reverse.
Her son was in the backseat. Police say Tippett was unresponsive for nearly 15 minutes until she was given a dose of Naloxone, an overdose reversal drug.
Tippett told police she had taken heroin minutes before and didn’t know what happened.
