A woman is facing charges after she allegedly drove drunk and crashed her car with three children inside.

Janea Shaquanna Breazil, 25, of Suitland, Maryland, was DUI and her children weren't buckled up, state police said.

Troopers responded about 3:45 a.m. Dec. 24 to Interstate 83 south in Shrewsbury Township for a two-vehicle crash, according to a criminal complaint.

Police found Breazil in a 2014 Ford Taurus with heavy front-end damage. She had glassy, bloodshot eyes and smelled of alcohol, police said.

Her three children, ages 1, 2 and 4, were in the back seat. Only the 1-year-old was in a child seat, the complaint says. 

Breazil was southbound when "she reached into the back seat to help her child" right before rear ending a 2021 Ford F150, police said.
