DURHAM, NC (AP) — Authorities said a North Carolina woman has been accused of driving while impaired and crashing her car, killing two children.
State Highway Patrol said 40-year-old Amanda Lynn Davis lost control of her car Saturday night and crashed, hitting a brick column and a tree.
Authorities believe speed and impairment caused the crash. Authorities said the car caught fire.
Two children in the backseat, 5-year-old Ayden Ramirez and 6-year-old Ronnie Ramirez Jr., died at the scene.
Davis was hospitalized with serious injuries.
She was charged with DWI and careless and reckless driving. Additional charges were pending.
It’s unclear whether Davis had an attorney.
