Alleged drunk driver slams car into toddler's bedroom in Spring

SPRING, Texas (KTRK) -- An alleged drunk driver is facing charges after she plowed a car into a home in Spring.

Britoni Colbert was charged with DWI after she crashed her car, coming just mere inches from a baby's bed at a home on Cottonshire Drive in northwest Harris County.

What's even more frightening is the 1-year-old girl and her mother were there when the car came through the wall.

They were not hurt, but the house was left with significant damage.
