" I hope it's a coincidence and not a trend," said Hubbard County Attorney Don Dearstyne.

"If it's a trend it's alarming," said Hubbard County Chemical Dependency Coordinator Sara Bowles.


Four women have been arrested drunk this summer in Hubbard County, driving with their children in the car. All four incidents resulted in a crash. None of the children was seriously injured physically.

Bowles said the emotional scarring could take years to heal.
