New Britain police arrested a Hartford mom after they said she was allegedly driving drunk with her 2-year-old in the vehicle.

Police said Erika Carrasquillo, 29, flipped her car in New Britain on Sunday evening, and then ran from the scene of the crash.

Carrasquillo reportedly drove off of the road near the intersection of Burritt and Myrtle streets at a little after 7 p.m., rolled her car onto its roof, hit a curb and then a fence, police said.

She pulled herself and her son out of the vehicle after the crash, and then tried to run from the scene but an officer responding to the crash found her near the scene, police said.

Carrasquillo reportedly smelled of alcohol and failed a roadside field sobriety test, police said.

Her blood alcohol content was reportedly more than three times the legal limit, and police said she also did not have a license or car insurance, and her son was not secured in a child restraint seat.

Her son was taken to an area hospital as a precaution, and was released to a family member.

Carrasquillo was charged with driving under the influence, no license, no insurance, risk of injury, evading responsibility, failure to drive right, and failure to have a child seat.
