A Massachusetts woman accused of leaving a severely injured 10-year-old boy at the scene of a crash over the weekend allegedly took shots of tequila while at a party before getting behind the wheel and had several open alcohol containers in her car. Thirty-seven-year-old Revere resident Cecilia Miranda pleaded not guilty to the charges, including operating under the influence of alcohol and two counts of child endangerment while operating under the influence, while facing a judge Tuesday in Chelsea District Court.
Prosecutors say that after the crash, which happened on Route 16 in Revere just after midnight Sunday, Miranda took off with one child, her 6-year-old son, and headed to Massachusetts General Hospital in a bystander’s car, but left another child, an unnamed 10-year-old boy who was severely injured, at the scene. The 10-year-old child’s current condition is unclear, but state police previously said the injuries were not life-threatening. Miranda couldn’t explain to investigators why she left the 10-year-old behind, prosecutors said.
Investigators who tracked Miranda down said she smelled of alcohol and was swaying. Miranda allegedly told officers she was sorry and said she had been to a party before the crash. Several open containers of alcohol were found in the car Miranda had been driving, and she admitted to having three to four drinks at the party, according to prosecutors. A witness told investigators that she allegedly took five shots of Patron tequila. During the arraignment, Miranda’s attorney said she is a lifelong Boston-area resident, a married mother of three who works as a medical assistant and understands the gravity of the situation.

Da fuq?? “My child is the only one that matters??” Why? Why would you even offer that up?? She could’ve just said, “I was drunk,” or “I couldn’t get him out and wanted to call 911.” But instead she was like, “Not my raw dog trophy, he can fend for himself.” Safe to say she won’t be babysitting anytime soon.
Also, “works as a medical assistant,” sounds like code for CNA. Which would explain why she’s pounding tequila shots and driving drunk at midnight with a 6 year old and someone else’s crotch fruit in her car.
I gotta say, by looking at her Facebook page I’d hardly have pegged this one for being future Turtleboy fodder, aside from the tittoo.
We don’t do a lot of blogs on married mothers who run 5k’s and shit.
No 100 emojis. No “only God can judge.” No pictures getting wasted. These blogs aren’t nearly as fun that happens. Although it looks like her and the hubby recently split.
That guy must’ve been packing the D if breaking up with him made her go from 5K Mom to ratchet madness candidate that quickly.
Either way, still a pretty shitty thing to just leave a kid there to die after grabbing your own and fleeing the scene of the crash. Personally I’d fear the mother of the 10 year old she left to die more than I would a Massachusetts courtroom.
