Ohio woman guilty in child's gasoline pump crash

PLATTSBURGH — TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio woman has been convicted of letting her 11-year-old niece get behind the wheel to move closer to a gasoline pump, leading to a fiery crash.

Twenty-nine-year-old Lashawnda Braddy of Toledo pleaded no contest Friday to disorderly conduct and was found guilty by Municipal Judge Amy Berling.

She was sentenced to time served since the accident two weeks ago.

Authorities say she allowed her niece to get behind the wheel to inch closer to a gas pump.

According to The (Toledo) Blade (bit.ly/MjXtHI), the girl lost control of the vehicle and hit the pump, causing a fire. No one was hurt.
