A mother and her baby escaped injuries after their pickup truck flipped over after a crash this morning in Craven County.
State troopers charged Heather Robertson of Vanceboro with reckless driving after the crash on Macedonia Church Road around 9:20 a.m.
Witnesses say the mother got distracted and the truck went off the road, through a ditch and then flipped over. The crash took out two mailboxes which were just replaced a couple of months ago after another accident.
A neighbor heard the crash and used a brick to break out the truck's rear window so they could get the baby out first, then the mom.
The 26-year-old woman told the trooper that she was tending to her one year old when she ran off the right shoulder of the road and lost control.
