A Fredonia woman who had a 2-year-old in her vehicle faces aggravated driving while intoxicated charges after her car rolled over Tuesday morning in Brant.

The one-vehicle crash on Erie Road happened just after 6:30 a.m., the Erie County Sheriff’s Office said.

Investigators determined Bishop was impaired by drugs and she was charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated with a passenger younger than 16.

Bishop was released with appearance tickets for Brant Town Court.
