Woman Suspect Involved In Toddler Hit And Run Arrested For DWI

The woman authorities say backed over a 2-year-old child in Pender County last Saturday, who later died from injuries, is now facing a new charge from this weekend for drinking and driving.

Our Wilmington affiliate WECT said 28-year-old Stevie Wallace was arrested for DWI over the weekend and jailed under a $50,000 bond.

Last weekend, troopers said Wallace backed over 2-year-old Carter Gilson in Pender County.

This is Wallace's second DWI in seven days, according to WECT.
