A mother is in jail after she allegedly drove home from a neighborhood pool with six children riding on top of her car because she didn't want their wet swimsuits to ruin her upholstery.

Kisha Young, 39, of Crowley, Texas was arrested after having the children - four of which were hers and two of which were a friend's - ride on the roof and the trunk of her Chevy Malibu for the short ride back home after swimming at the local pool, reports CBS DFW.

ohmygoodness! Thanks for posting this awful, yet LOL funny story.

I am very sorry for the child that was airlifted to the hospital and the others, of course, but this was quite a tale.

If it was really THAT close, they could have just walked home.

That would have been fun! We sat on open tailgates, and our parents rode on running boards. Having a mother named “Kisha” would have ruined us.

Leather?.....Kisha?.....driving with kids on the roof? To keep the faux leather in the Hyunda dry?
Really? Wanna bet she has a credit score of 400 and an 8yr lease.

I’m sure this seemed like a good idea to her at the time.

... Witnesses in the neighborhood were astonished to see Young driving with the kids - ages eight to 14 - on the outside of the vehicle, and were even more shocked when four of the children were flung from the car after Young took a sharp turn. As the children laid injured in the street, Young kept on driving, apparently unaware that the kids had fallen off the vehicle.

When Young finally circled back and realized the children were injured and needed medical attention. 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.Witnesses in the neighborhood were astonished to see Young driving with the kids - ages eight to 14 - on the outside of the vehicle, and were even more shocked when four of the children were flung from the car after Young took a sharp turn.

Yes, she is "Amish"...

If that happened to me when I was 10, I would have considered her a fun, awesome Mom.

Where did the Hyundai come from?
The link talks about a Chevy Malibu.

Until you were flung off in the street when she went around the corner too fast.

Honestly, kids fault for not hanging on. Damn video games. In the 70s I can tell you with some certainty kids new how to hang on to a car roof.

I like the sound of Hyundai. I think Chevy Cobalt sounds even better, but they aren’t made any longer and I don’t think leather was an option either.

That LifeLine helicopter ride to the trauma center would be a real fun trip. The paramedics would probably give you a popsicle with morphine.

Oh for goodness sakes! Make those kids ride in the trunk like my dad made me.

“This is the special childrens section of the car.”

“It looks kind of dark, Dad.”

“No....see how this light is on?”

I let all the air out of his spare tire.

In Crowley, a town full of losers, Kisha is known as “the loser”.

Chevy Malibu comes without seat belts for the roof and the trunk deck.

She made sure to drive fast so the kiddies’ suits would be dry by the time she got home (er, that was the plan anyway).

Don’t like that one? How about this: drunks and trunks don’t mix.

I’m thinking Velcro on the car roof might be the solution here. Cheaper than babysitters.

I had my own harrowing car ride today, my 15.5 yr. old daughter behind the wheel for the first time ever. Actually she did pretty well but she drove off the edge of the driveway, double wide drive way and there was another car parked there, so I'm glad she erred on the side of caution instead of side swiping the other car. It didn't help matters that I had just recently planted new grass where she went off the edge.

One other mistake, she was applying the brakes but the car was still rolling a little when she put it in park. The transmission made a weird sound but there was no evident damage. Over all, she did very well.

My point is that people like to post pithy comments without reading the full article. Just like the Civil War soldiers used to pause in their marches to pick blackberries, we ought to pause once in a while to actually read the articles to which we are responding.

Understood. However, I had already read the article previous to my original post.
