Toddler Recovering from Drunk Driving Wreck

A man accused of injuring a toddler in a drunk driving wreck over the weekend is out of jail on bond.

Lufkin police charged 52 year-old Preston McKenzie with intoxicated assault. The wreck happened Saturday morning near the intersection of Timberland and Atkinson.  An officer who saw the wreck says McKenzie took a swig of mouthwash and then threw it in the seat next to him near a can of beer.

Two-year-old Shamari Roberts was in one of three cars involved in the wreck and suffered a fractured skull.  Her aunt says she's swollen, but is back at home with her family.
