KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — A mom was arrested earlier in the week after she was found slumped over the steering wheel of a wrecked car with two children in the back seat.
Knoxville Police say an officer spotted Farren Neely’s black Ford Edge on Fourth Avenue and Hall Of Fame Drive around 7 p.m. Monday.
She apparently attempted to cross over Hall Of Fame and hit a retaining wall. Neely and her two kids, a 4-year-old and 1-year-old, were taken to the hospital. According to the arrest report, Neely admitted to staff she had taken methadone earlier in the day.
Her 4-year-old suffered a head injury from the crash. Neely faces charges of driving under the influence with kids under 18 in the car.
