Police: Woman tried to throw 4-year-old over fence after wreck

SPARTANBURG, SC (AP) - -

Spartanburg County deputies say a woman who saw a mother try to throw her 4-year-old child over a fence after wrecking her car managed to talk the woman out of hurting her son.

Investigators say 25-year-old Nikki Settle was driving under the influence around 10 p.m. Wednesday when she crashed her car on Interstate 26.

A witness says she then saw Settle cross the highway and walk up a hill with her son and try to throw the boy over a fence. She talked Settle out of hurting her son until deputies could arrive.

Authorities say the boy was turned over to his grandmother.
