Women Arrested In Seminole County For DUI Crash With Children In The Car


According to a report from Click Orlando, a woman in Seminole County has been arrested and charged with intoxicated driving. Notably, she reportedly had five children in the car at the time of the incident. Yubetty Baez Collazo is now facing several serious criminal charges. Within this article, our Orlando DUI defense lawyer explains what we know about this incident and the criminal charges that have been filed.

Driver Arrested for Driving Intoxicated With Children in the Vehicle 

Yubetty Baez Collazo was arrested in Seminole County following a two-vehicle crash. Alarmingly, Ms. Collazo reportedly had five children with her in the car at the time of the collision. The incident occurred near State Road 436 and Carmel Circle. According to a preliminary report from law enforcement, Ms. Collazo was driving erratically and smelled of alcohol. Her speech was slurred, and she appeared intoxicated. Ms. Collazo reportedly also resisted arrest and was aggressive towards officers. She faces DUI, child neglect, battery on an officer, and resisting arrest charges. 

An Overview of the Criminal Charges Filed in this Case 

Given the nature of the allegations, a number of different charges were filed against the driver in Seminole County. Of course, she is presumed innocent until proven in a court of law. Here is an overview of the charges that were filed:

  • DUI With a Child: Driving Under the Influence (DUI) is a serious offense. When an individual is charged with DUI with a child passenger, the severity escalates. In Ms. Collazo’s case, her impaired state due to alcohol and possibly marijuana made her unable to operate the vehicle safely, putting not just her life but also the lives of five children at risk.
  • Child Neglect: Child neglect entails the failure of a caregiver to provide adequate care and supervision to a dependent child. The driver is charged with five counts of child neglect, one for each child present in the vehicle. The alleged act of driving under the influence indicates a reckless disregard for the children’s safety.
  • Battery on an Officer: Battery on an officer involves using force or violence against a law enforcement officer. The defendant reportedly kicked an officer on the shin and hurled insults and profanities. The charge is significant.
  • Resisting Arrest: Resisting arrest refers to an individual’s act of opposing or obstructing law enforcement officers in the lawful performance of their duties. The defendant’s allegedly actively resisted being placed in handcuffs, attempted to walk away from the scene, and also struggled against being placed into a police vehicle.
