TOMS RIVER, New Jersey (AP) – Authorities say a New Jersey nanny passed out drunk while she was supposed to be watching a little boy, then fled and crashed her car into a fire hydrant when his mother got home.

Toms River Township police say 50-year-old Susan Porfido-Gibson of Berkeley Township was captured after the car crash. She’s charged with child endangerment and drunken driving. Police say her blood-alcohol level was three times the legal limit.

Authorities say the child’s mother hired Porfido-Gibson through a child care website and left her son with Porfido-Gibson on Friday morning. When the mother returned home in the early afternoon, authorities say she found Porfido-Gibson on the floor and her crying son with a soiled diaper.

When Porfido-Gibson awakened, authorities say she ran out the door.

She’s in jail and couldn’t be reached for comment.
