From the Las Vegas Optic

A Las Vegas woman has been charged with child abuse and DWI after police say she was high on marijuana when she was involved in a multi-vehicle crash with two children in the vehicle.

Linda Maldonado, 34, was booked into the San Miguel County Detention Center following the incident that took place around noon on Jan. 11. Initially, Maldonado was charged with DWI and several traffic violations; however, an amended criminal complaint was filed in San Miguel Magistrate Court two days later, adding a third-degree felony charge of abuse of a child.
