Michelle Reyes, 30, hit a tree head-on while driving on Lakes Road in Greenwood Lake at around 7:30 p.m.
Police say Reyes was driving with her children, ages 6, 5, 4 and 18 months. According to authorities, at the time of the crash her blood alcohol level was .27, which is more than three times over the legal limit. Investigators also say all four of Reyes' children were in improperly sized car seats.
