The crash happened on Saturday after the 32-year-old woman crashed into a guard rail and rolled the vehicle on to its roof. She had eleven kids inside the vehicle at the time, ranging from ages 2 to 17. You read that right. Eleven.
The woman, mother of seven of the kids, was arrested on the scene after admitting to drinking alcohol prior to the crash and failing a field sobriety test. It was reported her blood alcohol level was nearly twice the legal limit.
Unbelievably no one died in the rollover, even though the majority of the kids couldn’t have possibly been secured, although five of the kids were taken to the hospital. The six remaining kids were turned over to relatives.
In addition to the OWI charges for causing injury with a child under 16, police also want to charge the woman with felony recklessly endangering safety for turning the Dodge Durango into a clown car. “This is a good example of why I never believe that I’ve seen everything. This is crazy,” said Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke.
