Woodland crash leads to DUI, child abuse charges

By From page A2 | December 02, 2012

A Woodland woman faces child abuse, drunken-driving and hit-and-run charges in connection with a crash earlier this week.

Robey Sue Carboni-Pearson, was taken into custody on Wednesday after being released from the UC Davis Medical Center, where she and her young son had been taken for treatment of injuries stemming from the wreck, Woodland police Sgt. Steve Guthrie said.

He said Carboni-Pearson was driving in the area of Sutter Street and Hollister Road in the northeast area of Woodland when her car struck a pole. Police arrived to find the vehicle abandoned, but witnesses pointed officers toward Carboni-Pearson’s home nearby.

“The driver showed signs of being under the influence,” Guthrie said. She also had not sought medical treatment for herself or her child, whose age was not disclosed, so police arranged for their transport to the Med Center in Sacramento.

Guthrie said the boy was not seriously injured in the crash, but was hospitalized for precautionary reasons.

Following her discharge, Carboni-Pearson was lodged at the Yolo County Jail on multiple charges including drunken driving, hit and run, child neglect, willful cruelty to a child, obstructing police and driving without a license, Guthrie said.
