MORRILTON, Ark. (AP) - An Arkansas sheriff says three children
drowned after the car they were in went into a lake.
Conway County Sheriff Mike Smith says the children's mother was
driving the car when it went into Brewer Lake near Morrilton just
after 3:30 a.m. Sunday. Smith says the children were ages 2, 7 and
Arkansas State Police investigators and sheriff's deputies have questioned the 26-year-old mother. She had not been arrested or charged as of Sunday afternoon and Smith says deputies want to verify her account of what happened.
Morrilton is about 35 miles west of Little Rock. A series of strong thunderstorms and fog rolled through the area around the time of the crash.
