There were three parents among them accused of child abuse for allegedly driving drunk with their kids including Alexis Laughlin. Witnesses told police she was tailgating other cars and weaving through traffic on I-25. They say she abruptly veered toward the San Antonio exit and hit a concrete barrier. Police say they found alcohol bottles in her car and they say a blood test showed Laughlin at more than double the legal limit. Police will have heavy patrols through Monday night because of Memorial Day Weekend.
