Police: Mass. Mother Drove into RI Reservoir with 3 Children on Board

(The AEGIS Alliance) – PORTSMOUTH, RHODE ISLAND – A Massachusetts woman was arrested in the afternoon on Friday after she drove into a Rhode Island reservoir while her three young children were inside the vehicle.

The Portsmouth Police Department issued a news release in a Facebook post about officers responding to a report of a submerged vehicle in the reservoir water around 3 p.m.

The authorities discovered the driver who is named Amanda Nappi, age 30 from Milford, Mass. She was able to acquire access to the reservoir embankment and then drove into the water intentionally.

Police say that Nappi’s three young children were on board the vehicle she drove into the waterway.

“At that time, all the occupants were taken to a local hospital as a precaution,” police stated in a Facebook post. All four did not receive any serious injuries during the incident.

The woman‘s children were later brought and turned over to the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families.

30 year old Nappi was arrested after being released from the hospital on three counts of neglect or cruelty of a child.  Amanda Nappi was unable to post bond and bail out, and is being held at the Women’s Adult Correctional Institution in Cranston, Rhode Island.

Police say Nappi is expected to appear in court at a later date.
