The child’s mother says,

“All of a sudden the lights went out and there was an explosion. I grabbed my daughter and was shouting for my son. I just didn’t know where he was and I thought he could have been killed,”

She says her son did not cry but definitely was shocked. He suffered very minor injuries to his legs and back. Sgt. John Brennan says they used this video to show people why it is not safe to drink and drive.

“This family popped to the shop to buy some sweets yet found themselves caught up in somebody else’s selfish decision to drive while drunk,”

Marion Smith won’t be able to drive for three years and must complete 50 hours of community service. She will also have to pay more than $240 in fines.
