A Niles mother has been charged with two felony counts of endangering children after crashing her Nissan hatchback with her two other children, ages 14 and 15, and a 22-year-old son.

Jennifer Zurick, 48, has been charged with two felony counts of endangering children, and two misdemeanor counts of endangering children, after being arrested and charged with driving under the influence, driving under suspension, and failure to control.

According to the police report, Ohio State Highway Patrol was dispatched to a crash on North Road at Sunnybrook Drive in Howland Township on November 13 at 9 p.m.

The report stated that Zurick had failed to negotiate a curve while heading northbound on North Road, and struck two mailboxes, a sewer cover, a stop sign, and then struck a utility pole at a high rate of speed.

The 14-year-old was transferred to the hospital with a lacerated liver and spleen.

Patrol officers reportedly found 11 empty 50ml fireball whiskey in the front seat area of the vehicle.

Zurick was due in Judge Ivan Terrychak's courtroom on November 17, but the hearing was canceled, and instead, an arrest warrant was issued on Zurick.
