Woman eight months pregnant involved in drunken crash, police say
Prosecutors say an Attleboro man drunkenly rammed his pickup truck into the rear of his pregnant daughter’s car during an argument.
Joseph Moore III was held on $5,000 bail after pleading not guilty Thursday to charges including drunken driving and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
The Sun Chronicle reports that the 25-year-old woman, who’s eight months pregnant, declined medical treatment at the scene Wednesday afternoon.
Prosecutors say the woman drove away after an argument and Moore, with a blood alcohol content of .20, chased her and rear-ended her at an intersection. He then fled to a relative’s home.
Prosecutors say the impact knocked the cellphone from her hand.
Moore’s lawyer said vehicle damage was minor and noted that his client’s daughter did not obtain an emergency restraining order.
