CROWLEY (CBS NEWS)  - A child is in the hospital and a Texas woman is behind bars after allegedly having six kids ride home from a neighborhood pool on the top of her car, reports CBS DFW.

Kisha Young, 39, was arrested Tuesday after letting the children - hers and those of a family friend who was a passenger in the vehicle - ride on her car: four on the trunk and two on the hood. According to the station, the four children on the trunk fell onto the street less than a quarter-mile into the ride.

Crowley police said Young failed a field sobriety test at the scene; toxicology results are pending. Police are still interviewing witnesses."The children were riding on the trunk and hood of the vehicle because they were wet," Crowley Police Officer C.C. Meadows told the station. "They had wet clothing and apparently they didn't want to get the inside of the vehicle wet."

"The kids were really pretty banged up; one girl unconscious, had to be [airlifted] out," Stephanie Wywias, a mother of two who lives on the street where the children were injured, told CBS DFW. "Heartbreaking. I first thought some kids had been run over playing out in the street, but that wasn't the fact at all."

The most seriously injured child had to be taken by Careflight to a hospital in Fort Worth and remains hospitalized with a serious head injury, according to the station. Her mother was a passenger in the vehicle who could also face charges in the incident. The three other kids were treated and have been released. Child Protective Services is investigating.

"As a parent, you have to know right from wrong because the kids don't," said Wywias.
