Police: mother was using heroin at time of car crash

ST. LOUIS (AP) – A Missouri woman is facing multiple charges after crashing on Interstate 55, allegedly with a syringe of heroin still in her arm while her 3-year-old child was in the back seat.

The accident happened Tuesday in St. Louis. Authorities say 33-year-old Mandy Schlef of DeSoto is charged with endangering the welfare of a child, unlawful use of drug paraphernalia, and driving under the influence of a drug.

Schlef is jailed on $50,000 bond. Her child was not injured in the accident and is in the custody of the child’s grandmother.

Police say Schlef fell asleep and struck a median. Officers say she was asleep when they arrived and had a spoon and mirror in her lap and a syringe in her right arm.
