Mom could face charges in crash that injured her three kids
The children, ranging from 4 months to 4 years old, were riding in a minivan with three adults just before midnight Sunday when it collided with a car on Van Nuys Boulevard and Valerio Street, said LAPD West Valley Traffic Division Officer Ted Lauhon.
Both drivers were intoxicated, police said.
The mother of the children was a passenger in the minivan, along with another adult, he said.
None of the children were in car seats, and the 4-month-old was in a foot tub, Lauhon said.
The children were taken to a hospital for treatment of minor injuries, Sgt. Mike Zabowski said. The mother also was hospitalized.
The L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services was notified, he said.
