A woman is accused of driving impaired with a toddler in the vehicle in Sauk County on Wednesday, officials said.

The Reedsburg Police Department said police responded at about 5 p.m. to a report from a concerned citizen of a vehicle on Myrtle Street driving all over the road, nearly causing a crash.
