New York State Police say an Owego woman is accused of driving drunk with her baby in the car, hitting another vehicle and leaving the scene of that crash.
24 year old Kayla Johnson is charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated with a child in the vehicle, endangering the welfare of a child.
Troopers responded to a report of a hit and run at the intersection of Penn Avenue and State Route 434 Wednesday, March 16 in the Town of Owego.

Johnson was sent to the Tioga County Jail on $500 bail.
