Mother Arrested for DUI With Children in Car Crashes Into Long Island Backyard

A woman was arrested for driving under the influence with her three children in the car after she lost control of her vehicle and crashed it into a home in Brentwood, New York, on October 4, according to police.

Footage taken by Brentwood resident Angelica Reyes shows the car launching into Reyes’s kitchen and backyard.

“I’m just thankful that we are all good. Nobody was home, thank God,” said Reyes, who was at a friend’s house with her family.

The woman driving the vehicle has been identified as Ashley Thomas-Smith, and she was treated for minor injuries at Southside Hospital in Bay Shore, New York, before the children were released to the custody of their father. The three daughters, ages 4, 5, and 8, were not injured, Suffolk County Police said. Credit: Angelica Reyes via Storyful
