East Texas Woman Endangers Children During High Speed Chase

An East Txas mother of five, who had 15 warrants out, is behind bars after leading officers on a high speed chase.   Lindale officials say Amanda Poyner, 30 of Grand Saline drove at least 80 miles per hour, weaving in and out of traffic. Authorities say Poyner put her three children ages two, four and 12 years old in danger.   Poyner is charged with three counts of endangering a child and one count of evading detention with a vehicle.   Officials say the children's grandmother has taken the kids. CPS was notified.
