BLOOMFIELD, N.M. (AP) - A northwestern New Mexico woman is facing a number of charges after police say her drunken driving rollover crash caused the death of her six-year-old twin son.

KRQE-TV in Albuquerque reports Candace Jim was arrested Saturday following a deadly crash a mile west of U.S. Highway 550 near Bloomfield, New Mexico.

New Mexico State Police say the 40-year-old Jim over-corrected after crossing the westbound lanes and rolled over her jeep.

Police say Jim’s three children were ejected from the vehicle. The six-year-old boy died at the scene.

Authorities say his twin sister was airlifted to a trauma center for life-threatening injuries. A nine-year-old girl has non-life threatening injuries.

Jim was arrested on child resulting in death and other charges.

It was not known if she has an attorney.
