Four children injured after riding on top of Texas mother's car

CROWLEY, TX - Four children were injured and a Texas mother arrested after she reportedly allowed six kids to ride on top of her car.

Kisha Young, 38, was allegedly driving under the influence while another mom and their six children were all in her vehicle driving back from a neighborhood pool located about a quarter-mile from Young's home in Crowley, Tex., according to WFAA .

Officials said that the children were given permission to ride on the trunk and hood of the car after they didn't want to get into the vehicle due to their wet clothing.

The four children riding on the trunk of the car were injured after they fell off, and were transported to a local hospital.

Three of the kids have been released but the 12-year-old child, related to the mother in the passenger seat, suffered serious injuries and remains in the hospital.

Young remains in custody as she awaits arraignment. The mother in the passenger seat could also face charges.

Child Protective Services is also investigating the incident.
