A Selden woman was driving drunk with her 7-year-old son in her vehicle Thursday night in Farmingville when she crashed into a parked car, police said.

Davina Williams, 35, was driving a 1999 Lexus on Adirondack Drive near Oneida Avenue at 10:19 p.m. when she hit the car, Suffolk County police said.

There were no injuries and the child was released to the custody of his grandparents, police said.

Police said Williams was charged with driving while intoxicated under Leandra’s Law, which makes it a felony to drive drunk with a passenger younger than 16.

Williams was arraigned Friday in First District Court in Central Islip, according to online court records. Bail was set at $15,000 bond or $7,500 cash, the records state.

Her attorney could not be reached for comment Friday.
