NR woman facing criminal traffic charges in St. Paul
Ellsworth Wisconsin 126 S. Chestnut St. 54011

Authorities in Saint Paul Minnesota said a Wisconsin woman drove drunk and endangered her three young children when she flipped her mini-van.  It happened on Friday in the Gopher State's capital.  An eight-year-old child was taken to a hospital with a facial injury.  The other two kids, ages four and 12, escaped injury.  Their mother, 34-year-old Christal Luellen of New Richmond, faces charges of criminal vehicular operation, endangering children, and driving while impaired.  Officials said her blood alcohol content from a breath test was point-one-seven-six -- more than twice the legal limit of point-zero-eight in both Minnesota and Wisconsin.
