DUNBAR, W.Va. (AP) - Police in West Virginia say a woman was overdosing on heroin when she crashed her car into a restaurant with her 2-year-old son in the backseat.

News outlets report 28-year-old Kristin Tippett is charged with child neglect creating risk of injury.

On Tuesday, Dunbar police found Tippett passed out in the driver’s seat after her car went across a Wendy’s drive-thru lane before crashing into the building in reverse.

Her son was in the backseat. Police say Tippett was unresponsive for nearly 15 minutes until she was given a dose of Naloxone, an overdose reversal drug.

Tippett told police she had taken heroin minutes before and didn’t know what happened.

In the car, police say they found a needle, filters, marijuana joints and an unknown substance inside a cup.
