Young Mom to Serve Time for Fleeing Crash With Tot in Car

A San Diego woman pleaded guilty to a slew of charges connected to a hit-and-run crash in Pacific Beach in February that injured a jogger.

Amanda Brodd, 26, was in court Friday and admitted to driving under the influence and felony child endangerment as well as driving on a suspended license and resisting arrest.

Brodd’s blood alcohol level was over .15 on February 15 when her vehicle struck a jogger at Crown Point Drive and Sequoia Street.

Her 3-year-old daughter was in the back seat of the car at the time of the crash. The child was not injured.

The jogger was treated for serious but not life-threatening injuries.

Brodd changed her plea to guilty as part of an agreement with a stipulated sentence of five years in prison, according to the San Diego County District Attorney’s Office. Formal sentencing is scheduled for June 1.
