    PEABODY (FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) – A woman and her boyfriend are facing several charges, including operating under the influence, after the woman reportedly crashed into a pole with her 4-year-old child in the car.

    Danielle Firth, 32, of Peabody, is facing a drunk driving and child endangerment charge for the crash which occurred outside 11 Perkins Street around 12:42 a.m. on New Year's Day.

    Ronald Dominguez, 34, was arrested and charged with assault and battery on a police officer, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, and a warrant after he attempted to flee the scene of the crash with Firth's child, reports The Daily Item.

    Responding officers caught up with Dominguez and the child a couple of hundred yards up the street. Dominguez was taken into custody for a warrant, and the child was taken to Salem Hospital as a precautionary measure.

    According to the newspaper, Firth was transported to an area hospital where she was treated and released. She will be issued a summons for operating under the influence of liquor, reckless operation of a motor vehicle so as to endanger, and child endangerment while operating under the influence of alcohol.

    Dominguez was expected to be arraigned in Peabody District Court on Tuesday, but was a default at court.
