ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Police say three small children were taken on a very dangerous ride through Albuquerque by their aunt.
Police found the kids ages 9, 7 and 4 inside a car at a gas station on Coors Boulevard Monday, with the driver passed out behind the wheel.
They say the car had just been seen driving the wrong direction on Coors.
Police say the aunt, Diedra Lee, 25, was so drunk she couldn't even get out of the car by herself.
The 9-year-old told police as soon as her aunt stopped at the gas station she went inside to call her mother.
Lee is facing three counts of child abuse.
