GREENWOOD, Del. (AP) — Law enforcement authorities in Delaware say a boy has been hospitalized with serious injuries after a vehicle driven by a woman with four previous DUI convictions overturned.

Delaware State Police say 53-year-old Patricia J. Prettyman, of Milford, has been charged with multiple counts, including fifth offense DUI and first-degree vehicular assault.

Authorities say Prettyman, a man and his 11-year-old son were in the vehicle when it overturned around 9:45 p.m. Saturday in Greenwood. The three people were transported to area hospitals.
