TANGIPAHOA, La. -- A mother and her two kids remain hospitalized after a serious crash in Tangipahoa Parish Saturday night.

Louisiana State Police say the crash happened on LA 445, when 58-year-old Stephen Hebert, suspected of driving drunk, tried to turn left into the path of the Ponchatoula woman.

Nicole Young, 35, and her 5-year-old daughter and 14-year-old son were all not wearing seatbelts at the time. Both children were seriously hurt.

A breath test showed Hebert's blood alcohol level was over the limit. He's facing his second DWI, among other charges.

State police say Young could also face charges in the crash for not having everyone in the car properly restrained.
