An Oakland City woman is behind bars after deputies say she left the scene of an accident with her small child.

The Gibson County Sheriff's Office tells us 39-year-old Misti Bell was driving east on SR-64 when she crossed into the path of a car headed in the opposite direction.

After hitting the other vehicle, we're told Bell grabbed her child and started walking toward Oakland City.
Deputies say she was drunk and had drugs with her.

Tonight, Bell is being held in the Gibson County Jail on a long list of charges; including felony neglect of a dependent.
