NASHVILLE, Tenn. -
A woman faces a list of charges after crashing her vehicle while intoxicated, leaving the scene of the accident with an injured passenger still inside the vehicle and not seeking medical attention for her injured infant.
Police said Michelle Nannie, 36, was the driver in a rollover accident near 522 South 12th Street in Nashville Saturday night with a 17-year-old passenger and an infant.
Family members and the 17-year-old said Nannie grabbed her daughter and left the scene of the accident after the vehicle crashed and flipped.
The 17-year-old male passenger was left in the vehicle until police found him.
Approximately three hours later, family members called police and said they had seen Nannie in the alleys between South 12th and South 13th Street and they could hear the baby screaming.
When police arrived to find Nannie and her baby they reported the baby was wet, and her clothes were urinated on.
Medics said the baby's feet were so cold that they were unable to get a pulse oximeter to function on her feet.
The baby was taken to Vanderbilt Children's Hospital.
The 17-year-old was transported to General Hospital.
Nannie stated that the reason she left the accident was because she wanted to go home because she was intoxicated and she had urinated on herself.
When police attempted to arrest Nannie for public intoxication and leaving the scene of an accident she became violent and tried to pull away and kick officers.
Nannie is charged with public intoxication, leaving the scene of an accident with an injured person, child neglect of a child eight years or less, failure to give information or aid, and resisting arrest.
In 2004 Nannie was charged with public intoxication. In 2007, she was charged with use of drug paraphernalia and in 2009 she was charged with criminal trespassing.
Nannie plead guilty to all prior charges 2004-2009.
