An unlicensed Detroit woman caused a crash early Wednesday morning on the Ohio Turnpike outside of Cleveland. She was driving with three children in her minivan, and it appears that none of them were restrained properly. Two of the children were ejected from the vehicle and thrown into traffic. They were pronounced dead at the scene. The third child, who is five months old, remains in critical condition in a Cleveland-area hospital. An adult passenger in the minivan and the driver of the other vehicle involved were also taken to the hospital with less-severe injuries.
The driver, who was not seriously hurt, did not have a driver’s license and apparently has never had one. According to Secretary of State records, she has received over a dozen tickets since 2001 and was ruled unqualified to receive a license.
