    A woman suspected of driving under the influence and a hit-and-run had her 3-year-old daughter in the car when she was stopped Saturday evening, according to Prince William County police.

    An officer saw a car with extensive damage to its side hit a construction barrel in Woodbridge, Virginia, after 8:30 p.m., police said.

    Brand's daughter was not injured and was released to a family friend.

    Brand was charged with felony child neglect and DUI. She was also connected to a hit-and-run on Interstate 95 that Virginia State Police is investigating.
