WESLACO — A woman who was allegedly driving while intoxicated with a five year-old girl passenger was arrested after crashing twice, according to a news release from the police department.
Yvette Joy Flores, 18, was arrested at her home Tuesday night after leaving the scene of both accidents, police said. Flores apparently hit another vehicle with the 1998 Ford Explorer she was driving shortly before 10:30 pm. The victim of the accident followed Flores after she refused to stop.
While she was being followed, Flores lost control of her vehicle after striking a curb, police said. The Explorer rolled over, but landed back on its four wheels. At that time, a male passenger and a 5-year-old girl exited the vehicle, police said. Flores then continued to her residence, where she was later arrested.
The 18-year-old woman was charged with DWI with a child under 15 and failure to stop and give information. Her bond was issued for a total of $17,500.
