RUSH TOWNSHIP, SUSQUEHANNA COUNTY (WOLF) — A 4-year-old girl died Wednesday in Susquehanna County after a fatal car crash and her mother is facing homicide and DUI charges.

On November 18 at around 10pm, 29-year-old Paige Scully was allegedly driving with her four-year-old daughter in the car on SR 367 leaving the Hayloft Bar.

Scully, who police say was drunk, lost control of the car and crashed.

Her four-year-old was severely hurt and had to be flown to Robert Packer Hospital where she later died.

Police say they talked to Scully on-scene, and she had a strong odor of alcohol coming from her breath and body. Police add that she had glassy, red eyes and dilated pupils.

Scully allegedly was erratic and couldn't focus but told police she did not want medical attention.

Scully did undergo a sobriety test where police confirmed she was under the influence and therefore, incapable of safely operating a car.

When police searched her car, they said they found an open alcoholic drink- which Scully admitted to drinking before driving.

She is being charged with child endangerment, DUI and homicide.
