Baby And 4-Year-Old Get Minor Injuries In Crash

A woman, a baby and a small child escaped serious injury after their truck flipped over Monday afternoon on the Pitt County road.

State troopers say a 4-year-old and a 7-month-old baby were properly restrained when the Chevy Silverardo crashed on Abbott Farm Road outside of Winterville. Troopers say the woman came around a curve too fast, over corrected and then her truck landed in a ditch. All three just received minor cuts and bruises.

Troopers charged 29-year-old Rosalia Ortiz of Ayden with no operators license and a lane control violation. The truck was a total loss.

    to Reporter, I love what you're saying, but how do we know for sure who hires illegal immigrants? I want nothing more than to shut down every business that hires them, and would love to send them all packing back to Mexico. By the way, I love what you had to say in both of your posts.

    To Possible Solution: I love your ideas but there is no way that our politicians are going to enact the laws you suggest,especially the illegal loving Obamacrats. And if I might,in order to help matters,do you patronize businesses who hire illegals? (and the majority of Hispanics are) If you don't,hooray for you because you are in the minority...I see it everyday..people complain about illegals yet go to them for their business...So stop being part of the problem and become part of he solution.

    Take unliscensed drivers into custody and do not let them out unless proof of citizenship allows them to post bail. If no proof of citizenship then deport them. The only way it will ever get better is if they start deporting the ones that break the law. Do not give them a chance to "show up for court". Verify identities on all law breaking individuals and those that can not be verified can be deported.

    From the viewpoint of someone who worked many years in a criminal courtroom,there is no way to prevent anyone who wants to drive from getting in a vehicle and driving. The public has no idea how many drivers are out on the highway who have never had a license or with a revoked license..And,of course,many of them are illegals...And most of them never show up for Court after giving fake addresses to the troopers...So what is the solution? We used to report illegals to INS;however,now it seems to be politically correct to just ignore the problem. And until US Citizens stand up and stop using illegals as employees and stop bankrolling businesses who do employ illegals,the situation is just going to get worse..Remember that the next time you patronize a business who hires are part of the problem.

    I know I'm a girl and may not know a lot about cars/trucks but..... does Chevy make a SUV name Silverado? Last I checked and my hubby has two Silverado's out in the yard and a Silverado is a truck not an SUV and a big truck at that no way could it even be compared as an SUV..

    I am with you Jessica! They really need to have stricter laws for unlicensed drivers but then the other problem is they never show up for court and most are here illegally and when they tried to find them for failure to appear they are no where to be found. Spend a day in court and it is amazing how many hispanics never show up!

    No operator's license, REALLY?!! NO!!! (Sarcastically of course) Glad they are not hurt, but REALLY glad no one else was involved. Notice they didn't mention whether or not it was insured. Oh, and FYI, a Silverado is a truck, not an suv.

    This infuriates me! I'm glad there were no serious injuries. But if someone will drive without a license and without proper knowledge of safety, they could at least leave the babies out of the car. She put not only herself at risk, but also the children and anyone else who could have been on the road at the time. They should really get tough on unlicensed drivers!!!
