Two kids fall victim to Bucks County drunk driver

July 22, 2009

Two children were seriously injured in the Winder Village neighborhood of Bristol Township earlier this month. Lasandra Williams of Bristol Township is alleged to have been driving under the influence (DUI) when she struck two children with her car. The children, who remain unidentified due to their status as juveniles, were both badly injured with broken bones in their lower extremities, but are expected to survive.

When Bristol police arrived on the scene of the accident they found the boys lying in the street. Police were told by Ms. Williams at the scene that she had struck the children. Upon routine investigation, police learned that Ms. Williams' license had been suspended and that she was uninsured.

Ms. Williams reportedly failed the field sobriety tests which were administered by police at the scene of the crime. She was then transported to Lower Bucks Hospital to have her blood alcohol level tested, and then to local police headquarters to be processed.

Ms. Williams is facing the following Bucks County, PA criminal charges: two counts of aggravated assault while DUI (driving under the influence), which is a second-degree felony carrying a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and two counts of causing an accident with injuries while not properly licensed, which is a third-degree felony that carries a maximum of seven years in prison.
