Reckless driver launches trunk with children in the backseat into river

In other poor driving behavior, a woman suspected to be drunk, lost control of her truck and veered off a riverbank with three young girls, including her daughter, in the back seat.

A neighbor’s surveillance system in Newport, Michigan captured this harrowing moment last Sunday afternoon, when  a pickup truck rocketed down the residential street.

Cameras caught the truck smashing against an elevated bank, launching into the air, and plunging into the marshy river below.

The drunk mom and three young girls were rescued from the vehicle and assessed for injuries, with the mother subsequently hospitalized and tested for illicit substances.

Shawlynn Reece, who is one of the girls’ mothers, couldn’t understand how a fellow parent could jeopardize the safety of young children in her care.

“I don’t understand why any grown adult who is supposed to be responsible could put their own kid, let alone someone else’s kids, babies in harm like that,” she remarked.

Thankfully, the crash was so loud that it spurred residents of the neighborhood to check out what the commotion was and spring into action.

In the footage, a witness could be seen taking the girls and drunk driver out of the car, then laying them on the river bank.

Reece explained that her daughter had gone to hang out with her two friends after church. When she rushed to the scene, she said the driver “looked very confused” and seemed to not “realize what she had done.”

He daughter was taken to the hospital for treatment, but was released after receiving stitches, and being treated for a sprained wrist, bruises, and two black eyes.
