This is the 2nd offense DUI. Im pretty sure this woman does not think she has a problem because she continues to drink after her first DUI... She does not think her alcoholism has caused her to run off the road. Im pretty sure she thinks the car did it itself, not her...That's her best defense. She is going to continue to drink regardless...People like her does not need to have a key to any vehicle.

Obviously her priority is alcohol over her children. Yes someone needs to step in and save those poor children of hers.

Yep, sure did. And, I also know that when people are on drugs they don't want to be caught.-they will refuse medical treatment and run from the police. Not saying he is/was on drugs.. But why else would you bail?

The accident is horrible!! 2nd DUI I would say there is a problem weather she was driving or not. This so called mother of four innocent children has her young defenseless children in the vehicle with herself or someone else operating it under the influence. Unfortunately these children did not get to choose there mother or I am certain they would have a mother who would not endanger them expose them to stupid boyfriends that would endanger there safety. Drunk on Sunday, it would have been nice if the mother could have been at the park with her children. She could have been showing love and spending time with her children. How scary for the kids riding in a car with the mother and whoever else drinking. So sad I hope someone steps in and removes these kids. It is obvious this mother does not take proper care of her children. So Sad!

Right about one thing she should not have been drinking!!! Did the guy bail because he was also drinking? I would say yes, so how is that any better? She put her kids in the car with a drunk man and let him endanger her innocent children. The kids did not get to choose the mother they have!!!

did yall ever stop and think... DUIs do not always mean somebody was drunk or had been drinking... they are under the influence of pills, liquor,weed, etc it could be any of those.... and its still wrong regardless... just so ya know they are a couple of dope heads so bet they were under the influence of something other than alcohol! those poor kids, my heart goes out to them... they deserve a much better life or they are gonna travel down the same road.

I have family who are addicts. While some people do follow in footsteps... Others observe, and make a clear decision of what they want in their life. It is unfair to say that the kids WILL follow in their footsteps. I believe the article said that she had been drinking.
