Flipping idiot: Drunk driver's horrific crash with baby on board

  • 11/04/2017

A woman from Coventry in England has been jailed for 26 weeks after being found guilty of driving with a blood alcohol reading three times over the limit - and with her 20-month-old son sitting in the back seat.

Tania Chikwature's vehicle soared 14 feet into the air and flipped after hitting a traffic island. She later told police she was probably drinking vodka at the time.  Her alcohol level was 246mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood.

The terrifying driving was captured on a truck driver's dash camera.

The driver of the truck who witnessed the car flip over four metres in the air said it was the worst driving he had ever seen.

During sentencing the judge told Chikwature it was only luck that meant she wasn't facing more serious charges and that no-one had been killed.

The baby was not injured.
