A B.C. mother is facing charges of driving while impaired and driving while over the legal limit after a woman was found passed out drunk behind the wheel of her truck on Nov. 17.
Her infant child was strapped into their car seat in the back, and her dog was also in the backseat.
She had also previously been involved in a hit-and-run collision in Oceanside earlier that same day, police said.
Nanaimo RCMP said officers were first called on Thursday, Nov. 17 at 10:30 a.m. to the parking lot of the North Town Centre Mall.
They found a Ford F-150 pickup truck in park but the engine was still running.
The officers tried to repeatedly rouse the woman by yelling and knocking on the windows but were unable to, police said.
