HILLSBORO, Mo. (KMOX) – A mother’s Facebook post is going viral after she witnessed a drunk driver plowing through a crowded beach last weekend.
KTVI-TV reports Heather Peterson was with her family when a female driver backed her vehicle over a concrete median and onto Small Beach in Hillsboro, causing panic as beach goers scrambled to get out of the way. Peterson writes in her post “Parents were screaming ‘she’s not stopping’ and it was complete mayhem.”
After the car finally stopped, parents checked on the driver who said “‘all I’ve had is two drinks and a shot before I got in this car,'” Peterson writes.
Jefferson County Police took over an hour to reach the scene as they responded to other calls. Parents waited with the driver in the meantime.
Peterson’s post has received hundreds of shares and comments affirming Peterson’s frustration over the situation.
