Three young women from Owensboro have been arrested after allegedly driving an SUV while high and carrying six young children without their seat belts on.
Wednesday evening in Ohio County, Kentucky State Police clocked a speeding white SUV going 27 miles per hour over the speed limit.
Krislon Talbott, 18, of Owensboro, was pulled over on Wednesday after Kentucky State Police clocked her driving 97mph in a 70mph zone, news outlets reported.
A ‘strong odor of marijuana’ was coming from the SUV and Talbott – and two other women in the car – appeared intoxicated, according to state troopers.
Two other women, Peyton Coomes, 19, and Allison Frazier, 20, were also in the vehicle. The pair and Talbott were reportedly jointly babysitting the children.
Troopers say the driver, 18-year-old Krislon Talbott, failed field sobriety tests.
During the tests, troopers say they heard a noise and found three more young children asleep in the rear cargo space.
Talbott and two other adult passengers were arrested and taken to the Ohio County Detention Center.
Social Services took the children who were all under the age of five. Troopers say the women were babysitting them.
All three women were arrested and booked into jail at the Ohio County Detention Center in Hartford.
It was unclear whether they had attorneys who could comment on their behalf.
