ORLANDO, Fla. -- The Department of Children and Families said it is investigating an Orlando mother arrested on suspicion of driving drunk and crashing while her 3-year-old was in the back seat.

Police said the woman was parking at a 7-Eleven on Summerlin Avenue when she hit a pole Monday.

The woman, whose name was not released, left the scene, but witnesses were able to get her license plate number and followed her to a nearby restaurant.

The child is now with a family member, officials said.

She was probably going to a restaurant that serves alcohol no doubt. Glad the kids are safe.
