PSP: Mom used girl's breath to start car with DUI device

QUINCY TWP., Pa. - A Pennsylvania woman had her 8-year-old daughter blow into an ignition device meant to prevent the woman from driving while drunk shortly before she crashed and was again charged with drunken driving, police said.

Angela Daywalt, of Waynesboro, Franklin County, was charged with drunken driving, corruption of minors and other charges for crashing around 11 p.m. on February 13 with her daughter in the car, state police said. The crash happened in Quincy Township, Franklin County.

Troopers at the Chambersburg barracks announced the arrest Monday.

Daywalt, 36, left the scene of the crash and went home after a witness said Daywalt urged her daughter to blow into the ignition interlock. The devices are used to keep people with past DUI convictions from driving while intoxicated.
