Cops: Drunken nanny caused 4-car pileup in Alpharetta while driving 6-year-old

Missing vodka and a shaken up 6-year-old girl.

That’s what an Alpharetta family said they found when they returned home and learned that their nanny allegedly caused a four-car pileup with the child in the vehicle.

Sarah Kime faces charges of DUI and DUI child endangerment after the wreck, which happened earlier this month on Old Milton Parkway near Northpoint Parkway, Alpharetta police told Channel 2 Action News.

Kime, who had the child in the backseat during the incident, was allegedly slurring her words and was unsteady on her feet when police arrived, Channel 2 reported. 

“She was actually the nanny and she was under the influence at 9:45 in the morning,” Officer Dana Mullins told the news station. “You’re putting not only the child in danger, yourself in danger, but everyone else that’s driving on the roadway. It’s not something you should be doing, especially with a child in the car.”

Once officers returned the girl to her parents, the father told investigators he noticed some of the family’s vodka was missing from their home, Channel 2 reported. Police accused her of taking and drinking it.

Her parents declined to speak about the incident to the news station. Kime also didn’t respond to Channel 2’s request for comment.

She bonded out of jail and has a court appearance in June, the news station reported.
