Upstate NY mom charged after child crashes car


UNION, N.Y. (AP) - Police say an upstate New York woman is facing felony charges after her 12-year-daughter crashed a car, injuring the girl and two other children.

The Broome County Sheriff's Office tells the Binghamton Press and Sun-Bulletin that the girl was at the wheel when the car ran out of control in a parking lot, hit an embankment and rolled twice before landing upright.

Investigators say 37-year-old Michelle Lynn Hill of Union told them she was showing the children the car's safety features when it started to move.

The girl and two 13-year-olds were taken to a hospital for injuries deputies described as slight.

Hill was released after being arraigned Saturday on three counts of first-degree reckless endangerment. A phone number wasn't available for Hill.

The accident happened Friday in Union, just west of Binghamton.
