Multiple Injuries after Car Crash

Via the Daily Herald in Illinois:

An Illinois teenager faces a felony intoxicated driving charge after a car crash Saturday night.

According to police, the young woman was huffing from an aerosol can while driving, which caused her to pass out. Her car then crossed into oncoming traffic, where it struck another car and caused it to flip on its side.

The two passengers in the car she hit were taken to a nearby hospital. One of them, an 84-year-old woman, was found to have multiple fractures and a ruptured spleen. There were two other young women in the teenager's car, and they were also transported to the hospital.

The teenager admitted to police that she was huffing immediately before the crash. She has been charged with aggravating driving under the influence, improper lane usage, and no proof of insurance.
