Parker and her boyfriend, Hurley Manning, 40, of Vincennes were taken to Good Samaritan Hospital in Vincennes and were treated for minor injuries and released.

Parker’s three and four year-old granddaughters were in the back seat, buckled in with only a lap belt instead of a child safety seat.

While investigating the crash, a State Police trooper noticed Parker was impaired.

After further investigation she revealed she was under the influence of methamphetamine.
