A valley mom has been accused of crashing her car while driving drunk in Scottsdale. She fled the scene and police say she left behind her son.

The accident happened at 90th St and Raintree in north Scottsdale Sunday night. Police say the woman left her 13-year-old son behind after crashing into a median and took off with her other two kids.

Brianna Railing, 35, was also allegedly driving with a drink in her car.

The police report states Railing was turning onto 90th St from Raintree, but turned way too wide, hitting the curbed median. Her car ended up stuck on the median.

Instead of staying at the scene, Railing apparently got a ride away from the scene from a friend. She took her two youngest kids with her, and left the 13-year-old behind, police say.

According to the report, in the car was a red Solo cup, three-quarters full of something that smelled like alcohol.

Police spoke to the boy and had to call Railing and tell her to come back. Her breath test revealed she had an alcohol level of .157.

Railing was booked into jail for DUI, leaving the scene of an accident, and child endangerment.

    Robert De Niro says Tribeca Film Festival is his passion

    Robert De Niro is a family man, a filmmaker, an entrepreneur and one of my favorite actors of all time. He's also a co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival, which has more to see than ever before. De Niro wears just as many hats on screen as he does in real life. The father of six starred in six films last year, owns four restaurants and a hotel, and still finds time each spring for the Tribeca Film Festival, Lower Manhattan's annual cinematic showcase.

    New York City is exploring ways to curb the speed of taxis. The Taxi and Limousine Commission this week issued a request for information on "anti speeding vehicle technologies."  The measures include devices that can intervene when drivers exceed posted speeds and "advisory systems" that can sound alarms when reckless driving is detected.
