Elyria, Ohio (AP) -- Authorities in Ohio say a Detroit mother was driving 88 to 103 mph when she crashed her minivan this summer, killing two of her children.
The state highway patrol says Setita Patrick also had her driving privileges suspended a dozen times in the last decade and should not have been driving in July when she crashed along the Ohio Turnpike west of Cleveland.
Setita Patrick has been charged with aggravated vehicular homicide, operating a vehicle without a license and not properly restraining children.
An arraignment was scheduled for Dec. 17.
Patrick told investigators that she had told her children to put on their seat belts, but troopers say they were not wearing them.
Authorities say her minivan sideswiped another car, sending both vehicles off the road.
A message seeking comment was left at Patrick's home on Thursday.
