CINCINNATI (AP) - A southwest Ohio sheriff’s office says an Indiana woman flipped her vehicle while driving with her two sons after injecting heroin and apparently experiencing an overdose.

The Hamilton County sheriff’s office says 27-year-old Amanda Gordon of Lawrenceburg, Indiana, told investigators she and her children’s father purchased and injected heroin near an exit ramp to Interstate 74 on Friday.

Authorities say Gordon lost control of the vehicle shortly after 4 p.m. that day. The vehicle struck trees and rolled onto its top, partially ejecting Gordon and ejecting the children’s father. Their 8-year-old and 10-year-old sons were not injured.

County court documents show Gordon has been charged with child endangering and possessing drug abuse instruments.

A message seeking comment was left Monday with her public defender.
