A Berks County woman is accused of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol with young children in her vehicle. 35-year-old Jessica McCord of Mohnton is charged with DUI, endangering the welfare of children and other offenses, including driving while her license is suspended or revoked. She was arrested early Monday afternoon after her Chevy Blazer struck two other vehicles from behind at Sumneytown Pike and Bustard Road in Towamencin Township. Police say she had prescription drugs in her possession and she showed signs of impairment. They say three children between the ages of six and nine who were riding with her were not properly restrained, and they were treated at Lansdale Hospital for injuries.
