COPY-Mother accused of driving drunk in crash that killed baby

MILWAUKEE (AP) - Police say a woman was driving drunk when she crashed her car in Milwaukee, killing her 7-month-old son.

Authorities say the 22-year-old mother was driving at a high rate of speed when she lost control of the car about 1:30 a.m. Wednesday and it rolled over. Investigators say the baby was in infant carrier that was not secured in the vehicle.

The mother was taken to a local hospital for injuries that apparently are not life-threatening. Police say they will recommend charges of homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle and driving with a suspended license causing death.
