Charges have been upgraded against a Flanders mom accused of driving high on drugs, crashing and fatally injuring her 4-year-old daughter.  
A grand jury has indicted Amy Wesolowski on a charge of vehicular manslaughter in the crash that led to the child's death.
Investigators say the 34-year-old mother was leaving her driveway under the influence of drugs when she drove directly into oncoming traffic. Wesolowski’s 4-year-old was in the back seat. The child died from her injuries days later at Stony Brook University Hospital.
Wesolowski has been charged with vehicular manslaughter, DWI with a child under 15 in the car, driving on drugs, endangering the welfare of a child and driving without a license.
Wesolowski’s attorney says she was in a treatment program for drugs at the time of the crash.
Wesolowski was granted supervised release. A judge ordered her to remain in her drug treatment program.
