A San Carlos Park woman is accused of slamming her truck into the back of a car at a red light and having a blood alcohol level that was more than three times the legal limit. All of this with a young boy in the truck.

Mary Dolores Grosser, 57, of the 9000 block of Pomelo Road, is facing charges of driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs/fourth or subsequent offense, driving with a breath alcohol test of more than 0.15, DUI with a child younger than 18 in the vehicle, leaving the scene of a crash involving property damage and child neglect.

According to a Lee County Sheriff’s Office report:

A witness following Grosser’s 1992 Dodge 1500 truck called deputies about a reckless driver north on Three Oaks Parkway. At the intersection with Estero Parkway, the truck struck a 2010 Kia stopped for a traffic signal. The truck tried to back up, but the witness’ vehicle was behind it. The truck sped forward and hit the Kia a second time. The passenger of the Kia got the keys from the truck.

Deputies saw a small boy without child restraints in the front seat of the truck.

Grosser failed field sobriety tests and was taken to jail where a breath analysis show she had 0.260 and 0.267 blood alcohol content. In Florida, a person is presumed to be too drunk to drive with a breath alcohol content of 0.08 or above.

A records check showed she has five previous drunken driving arrests.

It was not clear in the report what happened to the young boy.
