    Child struck by a stray bullet in San Francisco.

    A mother was arrested after police say she hit a parked car, grabbed her kids and fled the scene.

    Ester Aidukas, 33, of Manchester Township, New Jersey was arrested last month after she hit a parked car in the mobile home park where she lived.

    But that's not all.

    Manchester Township Police say Aidukas was under the influence when she hit the car, removed her children, who were both unrestrained, from her vehicle and took off on foot to her mobile home nearby.

    Upon arriving at the scene, police say they found empty bags of heroin outside of the car.

    Aidukas returned to the accident alone, according to officials, and was placed under arrest. Authorities say they found more heroin and paraphernalia on the woman.

    She's charged with DWI, Endangering the Welfare of a Child, Possession and various other charges.

    Aidukas is being held at the Ocean County Jail on $75,000 bail.
