IRVING (CBSDFW.COM) - A car crash on Saturday night left two children dead and another two children injured, and their mother has been accused of driving drunk in the incident. Authorities said that 30-year-old Crystal Suniga had her four kids in the car when she drove up to three times over the posted speed limit along Pioneer Street.

The mother has been charged with two counts of intoxication manslaughter, two counts of injury to a child and one count of intoxication assault.

The speed limit where the fatal crash took place is 30 mph. Suniga’s vehicle slammed into two parked cars. Her 16-year-old son and 12-year-old daughter sustained injuries which were not life threatening. However, 14-year-old Angel Reyes and 10-year-old Ricardo Hernandez could not be saved.

Neighbors nearby heard the loud car crash. “We just approached the car and the little girl was screaming that she was looking for the other three brothers that were in the car,” said Adan Osuna.
