WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A 26-year-old woman has been arrested on suspicion of drunken driving after a rollover crash that killed her 5-year-old daughter.
The crash happened around 3:15 a.m. in a rural area southeast of Wichita near 47th Street South and 127th Street East, Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Lt. Benjamin Blick said.
Deputies found the woman’s 2014 Ford Escape off the road and overturned. The 5-year-old girl in the vehicle, Aleah Reyes, died at the scene while the mother had only minor injuries.
Blick said Nory Lam was arrested on suspicion of involuntary manslaughter, driving under the influence of alcohol and transporting an open container of alcohol. She was being held in the Sedgwick County jail.
