Pendleton County – Children Stuck Under Car After DUI Crash

Posted on Tuesday, October 22nd, 2019 at 1:30 am    

Two children were stuck under a car after it crashed into their home.

The incident happened around 7 pm, Thursday, at a home in Madison Pike.

21-year-old Mason Cordray was driving his Chevrolet Silverado when he crashed it into a home. Luckily, a mattress protected two young girls from being hit. However, they ended up trapped under the truck and still got injured.

When police arrived, they found him smelling of alcohol with bloodshot, glassy eyes. He also alleged that he drank four beers and four Vegas bombs, an alcoholic drink often made with Crown Royal and schnapps. He did not pass the police’s field sobriety test.

Cordray was charged with 14 counts of wanton endangerment, criminal mischief, two counts of fourth-degree assault and operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol. He has been placed in the Kenton County Jail.
