The vehicle overturned and landed upside down. Inside, the driver’s ten-year-old stepson was trapped. However, authorities confirmed he was not injured. Bystanders comforted the boy until he was released to his mother, according to police sergeant Darren Wyatt.

He was identified as Mark Costa, and was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence. In addition, he will also be charged with a hit-and-run charge as well as child endangerment, according to Wyatt.
The accident occurred at about 12:35 AM on Sunday April 30. Luckily no one was injured.
