Police: Children hurt while riding on mom's car

Posted: Updated:
CROWLEY, TX - A North Texas woman was arrested after several children riding on her car were seriously hurt.

According to the Cowley Police Department, 39-year-old Kisha Young was arrested Tuesday for intoxication assault, a third degree felony.

Police said she allowed a total of six kids between the ages of 8 and 14 to climb on the trunk and hood of her car because their clothes were wet from swimming.

Young is the mother of several of the children. The mother of the others was a passenger in the car.

Police say Young called 911 when four of the children fell off the car and got hurt. Young was arrested after failing a field sobriety test.

Three were taken to Cooks Children's Hospital in Fort Worth with minor injuries. Additionally, one 12-year-old had to be rushed to the hospital by air ambulance because of a severe head injury.

“There was one laying on the floor…there was a girl sitting next to her that was getting checked out; she had blood on her shirt and stuff,” said witness Holly Powell. “And then there was two kids that had road burns that were walking up and down the street.”

Police said additional charges are pending on both adults. Child Protective Services was also called.

“When we first came out here, I thought maybe somebody had gotten hit by a car because there was so many people and everything,” said Powell. “But, then to hear that, it’s just like…never would I have thought to do that with my kids. It’s…ridiculous.”
