    My husband was a driving by when this accident first happend before any medics or police arrived. He jumped in to put his arm between the boy in the front and the engine that was burning the little boys scalp. He called after the accident to tell me what went on and he was so shaken up by what he had seen knowing I was on the road with our three children. I was told the boy in the back seat was 10 months old not 2. I would still like to know what the toxicology report says and how this woman will be punished if she was under the influence. I would like to thank the medics & firemen for covering my husbands face while they used the jaws an inch away from his head to cut this boy out of the vehicle.
