Owen GilmanSTONINGTON, CT – A 10-year-old boy in the backseat of his father’s car called 911 to report his dad was driving drunk moments before his father crashed.

Rhode Island State Police received a 911 call from the boy who said he and his 12-year-old sister were passengers in a Mercedes driven by their father, Owen Gilman. The boy said he was in fear for his life because his old man was drunk and driving erratically.

The boy told them he was so scared that he was contemplating jumping from the moving vehicle because that would be better than crashing at the speeds his father was currently driving. The boy didn’t have time to test his theory, because moments later his father rear-ended a Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Gilman hit the Jeep so hard that he sent it 50 feet off the shoulder of the interstate and down an embankment where it overturned. The driver of the Jeep was taken to the hospital to be treated for blunt force trauma and lacerations and was last listed in fair condition. The 10-year-old boy and his sister were also taken to the hospital for lacerations they received.

Of course the only person not injured in the accident was the drunk. However, Gilman was arrested after failing a field sobriety test. Police also found a large amount of marijuana and drug paraphernalia in Gilman’s car.

He’s been charged with reckless driving, operating under the influence, failure to drive at a reasonable distance, possession of drug paraphernalia, illegal sale of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance, risk of injury to a minor and assault with a motor vehicle.

The 49-year-old is free today after his mommy and daddy posted his $250,000 bond. According to Gilman’s ex-wife, the boy and his sister were “doing good, considering.
