HOUSTON, TX – A woman confirmed she had been drinking before she crashed her vehicle while five children were in the car with her in west Houston last night, according to KTRK.
The accident occurred last night at 8:40 p.m. in the 3200 block of Greenhouse Road, at the intersection with Morton Road, when a 35-year-old driver, who admitted to drinking from a vodka bottle before the accident, ran a traffic light.
Her 2012 Chevrolet Tahoe then collided with a Toyota Corolla, then crashed into a tree.
The driver, a 5-year-old girl, and a 13-year-old girl were airlifted to the hospital with injuries that were not expected to be life-threatening.
The driver of the Corolla, a 56-year-old man, was sent to an area hospital in non-critical condition.
The female driver will likely face charges, according to authorities, though they did not state which charges those might be.
The identities of the drivers were not made available.
