Chasity Weston, who authorities said had been drinking at the time of the accident, was listed in critical condition at Doctor’s Hospital on Monday evening. The family has requested that the hospital not release any further information on her condition.

She faces charges of driving under the influence of alcohol and failure to maintain lane after her release from the hospital.

Richmond County authorities said Weston was traveling along the 4800 block of Mike Padgett Highway, south of Horseshoe Road, in her black convertible Mustang about 11 p.m. when she lost control and rolled the vehicle.

Authorities clarified Tuesday that Weston was not ejected from the vehicle but her two small children, ages 4 and 5, were. Authorities are investigating whether the children were properly restrained.

The 4-year-old boy remains in critical condition at Medical College of Georgia Hospital. No further information was available on the 5-year-old.

Well, Summer, I'm certain those you are criticizing would welcome knowing about 'the situation,' or any explanation, with which they could then sympathize appropriately. We are all ears.

Anyone who drinks and drives

Anyone who drinks and drives should never have the privilege to drive ever again.Those 2 kids are in my thoughts and prayers.I will never understand why anyone can drink and drive. Too many have been injured and killed by drunk drivers. There are no excuses for anyone to drink and drive. none

I agree happychimer and to

I agree happychimer and to Chasitys family, I don't think all the comments were rude. Just because a person comments and someone else doesn't like it doesn't mean it is rude. The truth sometimes hurts and the truth is that this young woman got on a car after drinking how ever much she drank and she put her life and her childrens lives in jeopardy and it is by the grace of God that any of them survived. That is the truth and if that seems rude then I am sorry but again the truth hurts. People don't have much sympathy for drunk drivers because everyone knows it is illegal and dangerous. I do pray for those babies and I pray that she will get the help that she obviously needs.

I know a woman whose husband

I know a woman whose husband and his nephew died because of a drunk driver.The nephew left a wife and a set of newborn triplets, all because someone chose to drink and drive. If the truth hurts, then we are suppose to tell a lie? I don't think so.

Unpublished

This is a person who was very irresponsible and didn't care enough about her children to not drink and drive with them in the vehicle. And to make matters worse, they weren't even buckled up! Maybe her family should've gotten her some help before she almost killed her children. I have NO sympathy for this woman and hope she never gets her kids back.
