A mother is facing charges after leading police on a chase, crashing into three vehicles and driving recklessly with her two children in the car in West Hartford, police said.
New Britain police were investigating Amber M. Johnson, 32, of Manchester, in connection to an April 18 incident when she fled police with her two kids in the car, striking the other vehicles in the process, police said.
Police charged Johnson with injury or risk of injury or impairing the morals of children, first-degree reckless endangerment, evading responsibility, reckless driving and failure to obey a control signal.
She was arrested July 30 at noon at her home and taken into custody.
Johnson is scheduled to appear in court on Aug. 13.
