A 47-year-old was driving drunk with her 13-year-old daughter and four other children in the car when a Mercedes-Benz crashed into a utility pole on Long Island, police said.

The incident happened at about 10:10 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 31 in Deer Park, Suffolk County Police said.

Jacquelin Moore, of Dix Hills, was driving the 2012 Mercedes on Acorn Street, near Half Hollow Road, when she crashed the vehicle into a utility pole, police said. 

A 16-year-old female passenger was transported to Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries. The four other passengers, 15-, 13- and 12-year-old girls, and a 7-year-old boy were not injured. The children were released to the custody of family members.
