PITTSBURGH (AP) – A woman due in court this month in a drunken-driving case has been arrested after a suspected drunken crash in Pittsburgh that injured six children in her car.

Police say none of the children were wearing seat belts when 28-year-old Raelynn Nicole Thompson crashed on a parkway exit ramp before 3 a.m. Monday.

State police say the children range in age from 6 to 13 and sustained moderate to minor injuries.

Court records show Thompson has previously been charged with driving under the influence, driving on a suspended license and resisting arrest.

The charges filed Monday include six counts of reckless endangerment. A preliminary hearing is set for Feb. 1.

She does not have a lawyer listed in court papers.
