Mom gets jail time for DWI crash that injured kids

Posted: Updated:
CAPE CARTERET, N.C. - 28 year-old Tonya Gillikin pleaded guilty to two counts of felony serious injury by motor vehicle Wednesday.
     
In April, she was driving on Highway 24 in Cape Carteret with her boyfriend and four children, when she hit a curb and flipped her van.
     
All of the children had to be taken to hospitals for treatment.
     
The 3 year-old's car seat was not attached to the minivan, but he was buckled in the seat. He was ejected from the van in the crash.
     
A sample of Gillikin's blood showed a blood-alcohol level of .09 as well as a presence of marijuana.
     
She's sentenced to 14 to 26 months in prison.
