Vincennes grandmother arrested for driving under the influence of meth

KNOX CO., IN (WFIE) -

A Vincennes woman was arrested on Saturday morning and faces charges of driving while under the influence of meth with her two grandchildren in the vehicle.

Indiana State Police responded a single vehicle crash around 9:00 a.m. Saturday on U.S. 41 and SR 241 near Decker that injured two adults and two children.

Officials say 40-year-old Brandy Parker, of Vincennes, was driving her 2003 Chevrolet southbound on U.S. 41 when she drove off the roadway into a median.

Parker attempted to get her vehicle back on the road but overcorrected. The vehicle skidded across both lanes and ended up striking a highway sign in a ditch.

Parker's three and four year old granddaughters were in the back set of the vehicle. Officials say they were only wearing a lap belt.

Indiana law requires children under the age of 8 to be properly restrained in a child safety seat or booster seat.

While investigating the accident, a state trooper said they noticed Parker was under the influence of meth.

Parker, her granddaughters, and her boyfriend, 40-year-old Hurley Manning, of Vincennes, were taken to Good Samaritan Hospital in Vincennes.

Both children received minor cuts to their face. They were released after being treated.

Parker was taken to the Knox County Jail and faces multiple charges:

  • Driving while intoxicated (meth)
  • Driving while suspended
  • Child restraint violation
Her bond is set at $5,000.
