SMITHLAND, Iowa (KCAU) – One person was arrested for drunk driving with a kid and leaving the scene of a crash after the tire fell off the car.

Court documents said Kiali Gotto, 26, of Danbury, Iowa, was driving Thursday around 4:30 p.m. near the intersection of 330th Street and Knox Avenue about a mile west of Smithland, Iowa when the tire fell off the car she was driving. Gotto reportedly then lost control of the vehicle, causing it to roll over. 

She then left the scene of the crash with the passengers, a 9-year-old child and two adults. One of the adult passengers showed signs of a possible concussion and was taken to a hospital. 

Gotto was later found and reportedly admitted to drinking and driving. A breath test showed she had a blood alcohol concentration of .083.

Gotto was charged with OWI, child endangerment, and leaving the scene of a crash. She was booked into the Woodbury County Jail and was being held on a bond of $5,000.
