Drunk woman arrested for running over toddler’s head


A North Carolina woman is in jail for allegedly running over a 10-month-old girl’s head while driving drunk, WGHP-TV reported on Thursday.

Stormie Vancil, 26, was charged with felony serious injury with a vehicle and driving while impaired for the incident early Wednesday morning in the emergency room parking lot at the Alamance Regional Medical Center. Vancil was allegedly driving through the parking lot as Melissa Flynn was placing the other victim, her daughter Aubrey, in a stroller.

The suspect’s arrest warrant stated that her car’s tires “rolled over and on top” of the infant’s head, while Flynn was knocked off of the hood of Vancil’s car.

Vancil problems, however, are even further complicated by her husband’s transgressions.

“Is there any way I can ask for a bond reduction so I can make arrangements for my children?” Vancil asked Judge Kathryn Overby during her court appearance on Wednesday. “‘Cause my husband is also getting locked up.”

The Burlington Times-News reported that police suspected Vancil was driving a male passenger to the hospital for treatment, but no members of her family had been admitted for treatment as of Wednesday. Her husband, who was not identified, was in court facing charges in a separate case.

Flynn was treated and released from Alamance on Wednesday. Her daughter was transferred via helicopter to UNC Hospital in Chapel Hill. She was listed in stable condition as of Thursday night.

Vancil’s bond request will be taken up during another court appearance on Friday.
