A mother was booked into Mohave County Jail after she reportedly crashed with her 10-year-old daughter in the car. 

On Thursday, Mohave County Sheriff's Office says they received a call of a child walking down the road in Mohave Valley who stated that she and her mother had just gotten into a crash. The girl was told to walk to a family member's house nearby. 

Deputies found the wrecked vehicle and saw 36-year-old Darla Faye Drury sitting outside of it. 

MCSO says Drury had slurred speech and appeared heavily intoxicated. She reportedly refused to answer questions and called deputies offensive names. Open containers of alcohol were also found in the car.

Lab tests revealed that her blood-alcohol content was .294 at the time of the crash. 

She was booked into jail on two counts of felony aggravated DUI.
