Euless mom may face drunken driving charges after crash

EULESS -- A Euless mother police suspect of driving drunk crashed her sports utility vehicle Saturday night, injuring eight teenagers, including her daughter, that were riding with her after she had picked them up following a movie, police said Monday.

The 37-year-old mother and the two boys and six girls were transported to hospitals in Irving and Grapevine, but there were no life-threatening injuries, police said.

Police are awaiting a blood alcohol test on the mother, Euless police Lt. John Williams said Monday, before proceeding with the case.

The woman faces multiple charges of driving while intoxicated, police said. No one has been arrested in the case, police said.

The accident happened shortly before 10:30 p.m. Saturday in the 1200 block of Donley Court.

The Euless mother was driving a 2002 Chevrolet TrailBlazer southbound on Donley Court when she told police that she swerved to miss a dog. According to witnesses interviewed by police, the driver swerved to avoid a parked vehicle.

The TrailBlazer hit a curb, breaking a wheel and causing the TrailBlazer to flip over, police said.

The mother was injured along with eight teens, ages 14 and 15, according to the police report. Three teens were 14 years old and five teens were 15 years old, police said Monday.
