EPHRATA, Pa. (AP) — Police say a Pennsylvania woman was driving under the influence and holding a baby on her lap when she crashed her vehicle into a curb.

Police tell LNP (http://bit.ly/1SI2Q8K ) that Erika Rizzon, of Ephrata (EH'-fruh-tuh), struck a curb at the intersection just after 10 p.m. Saturday in Ephrata.

Witnesses told police that the 32-year-old Rizzon was holding a baby at the time of the crash.

Ephrata police Sgt. Philip Snavely says the 8-month-old child was checked for injuries, then was released to a family member.

Rizzon was arraigned Sunday on charges of driving under the influence and child endangerment and released on $3,000 unsecured bail.

Online court documents don't list an attorney for her.
