Video Captures Mom Suspected of DWI Crashing with Kids in SUV
A Long Island mother apparently missed a MADD memo … she was arrested for DWI after a terrifying accident – captured on camera – with her 3 young children in her vehicle.
Ashley Thomas-Smith lost control of her Lincoln Navigator and home surveillance cameras picked up the moment she walked through a front yard, nearly knocking the SUV onto its side. She then crashed into a house on Sunday afternoon and demolished the kitchen.
Watch the video … you can hear the screeching tires and sadly the screams of frightened children. Fortunately, the children suffered no injuries and were returned to their father. Thomas-Smith was arrested for DWI and endangered the welfare of a child.
Owner Angelica Reyes told WCBS TV the accident could have been a lot worse if they were home at the time, as she and her family, including a 2 month old baby, are spending a lot of time. time in the kitchen.
She also said Thomas-Smith got stuck in the SUV for an hour because the refrigerator was blocking his door. Her license was suspended and she was released with an alcohol watch bracelet. She reportedly pleaded not guilty to the charges.
