Drunk Mom Rolls SUV With 11 Kids Inside

June 14, 2011

MILWAUKEE – A vehicle with a drunken driver behind the wheel and 11 children inside rolled over on a big-city exit ramp in Wisconsin, sending five of the kids to the hospital, authorities said.

The crash happened Saturday afternoon on northbound Interstate 43 at the 10th Avenue exit in Milwaukee, with the sport-utility vehicle coming to a rest on its roof, according to the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office.

The driver, a 32-year-old woman, admitted she had been drinking. Her blood-alcohol content reading of 0.16 percent confirmed that, the Sheriff’s Office said. The legal limit is .08.

“This is a good example of why I never believe that I’ve seen everything,” Sheriff David Clarke said. “This is crazy.”

The driver, who is mother to seven of the children, faces possible charges of drunken driving, as well as felony recklessly endangering safety because she was intoxicated while driving a vehicle that didn’t have enough seats for the number of passengers.

The children ranged in age from 2 to 17.

    Well, I still say that some people insist upon showing us that their stupidity has no bounds. Surely, she must have known that the children in the car were in danger when she got behind the wheel! Do they have "chain gangs" for women? If they do, put her on it!

    The woman crashed her Dodge Durango. The SUV flipped and landed on its top. Several children were on the laps of others as there were not enough seat belts. The kids were age 2-17 years old. Five children were injured.
    This women is a real piece of work.....

    What was this woman think? Oh right she was drunk and not thinking. I pray that ones that went to the hospital will recover soon. I read some comments and I to believe she should be placed in jail and never be heard of again.

    17 year old in the car...wonder if they had a license and could have driven the vehicle instead of an incredibly intoxicated mother...
