FINLEYVILLE (KDKA) — A woman in Washington County is suspected of drunk driving while putting her children in danger at the same time.

Sherry Biles, 40, got into an accident early Thursday morning, less than a mile from her home in Finleyville.

“She doesn’t remember anything,” Patricia Vankirk, Biles’ mother, said.

Paramedics say they smelled alcohol in the car. Then when state police went to Biles’ home to notify family members of the accident, they found Biles’ children, ages six and eight, home alone.

That’s when Biles’ mother stepped in. They live next door to each other.

“I went down, took care of the kids, got them off to school and told me she was in Presby and she was a little bit banged up and that,” Vankirk said.

Biles remains at UPMC Presbyterian Hospital.
