A Washington woman was arrested after she allegedly drove a stolen car into fresh concrete and became stuck before trying to flee the scene with a child and a bottle of whiskey.
The incident happened Monday in Lakewood as crews were pouring concrete for a stretch of pavement at the North Gate Road and Edgewood Avenue roundabout, city officials said.
“Thanks to a series of poor choices by an individual (including driving a stolen car with a bottle of whiskey in hand) our pavement pouring at the North Gate Rd/Edgewood Ave roundabout is setback,” the city tweeted on Monday.
Photos from the scene showed the Mini Cooper stuck in the concrete and a trail of footprints leading away.
The driver, a 32-year-old woman, was driving with her 4-year-old son in the backseat, FOX13 Seattle reported, citing authorities.
After the woman got stuck in the concrete, witnesses reported that she threw a television, an Instant Pot, and a half-empty bottle of whiskey out of the car before trying to leave the scene.
Investigators learned that the vehicle and other items were stolen from the home of the suspect’s mother, according to the report.
The woman, whose name was not immediately released, was booked into jail on suspicion of negligent driving, with additional charges of vehicle theft and possession of stolen property pending.
Meanwhile, the city said its contractor team was working to repair the damage.
Lakewood is a city located about 40 miles south of Seattle.
