Stephanie Dillard has been charged with endangering a child for her actions.
Her three children, aged five, 12 and 16, were with her in the car when she collided with a bus, her youngest child sustaining an injury above her eye. Dillard, though, rather than remaining at the scene of the accident and tending to her three children, got up and walked away to a nearby store when she began taking off her clothes.
She was found by detectives eating ice cream and then promptly resisted arrest.
Her children have been put in to the care of their grandmother, with Dillard remanded in custody.
