A woman faces DUI with injury and unlawful possession charges after two children are injured in a head on collision in McDowell County.

According to a trooper with the West Virginia State Police Welch Detachment, Jennifer Mullins was highly intoxicated while driving on Route 52 around 4 p.m. on December 6 near the Keystone area. She lost control of her car and crossed the center line hitting another car with a family inside, injuring two children. The two children were transported to Bluefield Regional Medical Center. 

Troopers said while interviewing Mullins on scene they could tell she was highly intoxicated because she kept nodding off. 

Mullins was taken to the Welch Community Hospital, and arrested after she was released. According to troopers, she also tried to bring drugs into the jail. 

She faces several charges including DUI with injury, and two counts of unlawful possession.
