Children survive violent crash triggered by drunk mom's erratic driving. Lauren DiSpirito reports.

(WBBH) A Fort Myers, Florida woman was arrested Sunday after driving drunk with her children and causing a crash that sent two people to the hospital.

Witnesses say a blue Jeep Wrangler was going south on US-41 when it lost control while attempting to change lanes.

The Jeep then hit a green Ford SUV, causing both vehicles to cross the median and roll over into on-coming traffic.

The driver of the Jeep was identified as Christina Cavanaugh. Her two children, a 7-year-old girl and 9-year-old boy, were in the Jeep during the crash.

Cavanaugh agreed to a field sobriety test and failed.

When deputies told her she was under arrest for drinking and driving, she refused to be handcuffed.
