A 32-year-old Hamburg woman is facing a number of charges after police say she was driving drunk with two kids in her car when she hit two cars head-on.  

Erie County Sheriff's Deputies were called to Boston State Road in Boston Wednesday night for reports of an erratic driver and car crashes.  While investigating those crashes, deputies say they discovered 32-year-old Brittany Grabowski was driving drunk, and had an eight-year-old child and a five-year-old child with her.  Police say Grabowski failed a number of field sobriety tests, and registered a BAC above the legal limit.

Grabowski was arrested and is facing Leandra's Law charges.  She's also charged with Endangering the Welfare of a Child, Reckless Driving, Reckless Endangerment and Reckless Endangerment of Property among other things.

Police say Grabowski was taken to the Erie County Holding Center.  The children were turned over to their father, and Child Protective Services was notified.  No injuries were reported.
