Mother accused of DWI with 3 children in car

KILLEEN, TX (KXXV) - Killeen police say a mother is suspected of driving while intoxicated with her children in the car after an accident Thursday morning.

Witnesses say the woman was speeding and running people off the road about 10:30 a.m., while southbound on Central Texas Expressway.

She then drove into a ditch in front of the All American Chevrolet car dealership, taking out the water main, light pole and electric pole.

Three children under the age of 9 were in the car during the wreck. The kids and their mom were all taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Once she is released from the hospital, police say she will face charges, including driving while intoxicated. The case is pending with the Bell County District Attorney's Office.

Authorities will not release the name of the driver until formal charges have been brought against her.
