Oh look. Another story about some imbecile letting her kids ride on top of the car. All six of them at once, which is probably a new record. Of course, things ended poorly. And yes, intoxicants were involved, at least so say police.
Worried that her car’s interior would get soaked, a Texas woman directed six children fresh from a community pool to sit atop her vehicle’s trunk for the one-mile drive home Tuesday evening.
That decision resulted in Kisha Young’s arrest when the children fell from the Chevrolet Malibu around 8:30 PM when the 38-year-old–who was allegedly intoxicated–made a sharp turn on a residential street in Crowley, a city 15 miles south of Fort Worth.
Four of the six children flung from the car were injured, with a 12-year-old girl requiring hospitalization for a severe head injury.
The kids, who range in age from 8 to 14, belonged to Young and an unidentified passenger that we really don’t know a lot about, though the fact that she went along with this likely tells us much of what’s important.
That passenger hasn’t been charged, but Young has. She’s been hit with counts of intoxication, assault with a vehicle, injury to child and driving while intoxicated with a child under the age of 15. Her bond was set at $110,000.
