Indiana State Police say the carjacking took place around 5:30 a.m. Saturday near Lansing.

Sgt. Kim Riley says after the collision, the driver of the SUV went to check on Green. Riley says that's when she jumped into the man's SUV and drove off.

The boy was able to use a cellphone to speak with a police dispatcher and identify landmarks.

A trooper pulled the SUV over on I-94 in Indiana, and Green was arrested.

She's charged with driving while intoxicated, possession of a stolen vehicle and criminal confinement.
