DUI, child neglect charges follow crash

A 42-year-old woman fell asleep at the wheel of her car and crashed Friday morning after taking Xanax and NyQuil before driving a 5-year-old boy to school, the Pasco County Sheriff's Office said.

The single-car accident happened about 10 a.m. at Little Road and Embassy Boulevard. Deputies at the scene said Jill Marie Gates of 12125 Randee Road in Moon Lake Estates was lethargic when speaking to them and she said she took the medication and fell asleep while driving. A report does not state whether or not Gates or the child were injured in the accident.

Gates was arrested and charged with DUI and child neglect. She is being held at the Pasco County jail in lieu of $5,150 bail.

    The Heater

    BALTIMORE — We know what the Rays look like this year: a team that had enough talent but too many flaws, in construction and performance, and in the next few days will be officially eliminated from a wild-card race it had a chance to win but let slip away.
