Tuesday afternoon, Middle Township police responded to an out of control driver in the Rio Plaza Shopping Center.

The vehicle, being driven by 26-year-old Jacquelyn Dunbar of West Wildwood, was driving through the parking lot in front of Peebles. In the car was a 2-year-old child properly restrained in a baby seat.

According to a press release, she lost control of the vehicle and hit a curb and then veered across the lane striking a support column. Dunbar then backed up and struck a parked vehicle in the lot, and then drove forward again striking the same support column.

During the investigation it was determined that Dunbar was driving under the influence. Two empty heroin packets were found in the vehicle. Dunbar was transported to Cape Regional Medical Center for minor injuries.

She was charged with driving while intoxicated, 2nd degree child endangerment, possession of drug paraphernalia, reckless driving, driving while suspended, and uninsured driver. Dunbar was incarcerated in the Cape May County Correctional Center in lieu of $25,000 bail.

At the time of the crash there were numerous shoppers and pedestrians in the area. Several videos of the aftermath have popped up on social media sites. If anyone has a video of the car in motion prior to the crash, please contact the Middle Township Police Department at 465-8700.
