Woman steals SUV with child inside after DWI crash

LANSING, Ill. – Authorities say a drunken Chicago woman took off in a man’s SUV with his 13-year-old son inside after rear-ending his vehicle on Interstate 80 in northeast Illinois.

Thirty-two-year-old Larona L. Green is accused of driving into Indiana with the boy.

Indiana State Police said the carjacking took place around 5:30 a.m. Saturday near Lansing, Illinois.

Sgt. Kim Riley said that after the collision, the driver of the SUV went to check on Green. Riley says that’s when she jumped into the man’s SUV and drove off.

The boy was able to use a cell phone to call his father and identify landmarks.

A trooper pulled the SUV over on Interstate 94 in Indiana, and Green was arrested.

She’s charged with driving while intoxicated, possession of a stolen vehicle and criminal confinement.
