Woman arrested after driving with several children riding on roof of her car

A Memphis woman is charged with abuse after an accident that left a child critically injured.

A witness said she saw a car driving back and forth at a high rate of speed in a parking lot Wednesday night on Mud Island with several children on the roof.

The same witness said she saw the car drive up the ramp to leave the park, when an 8-year-old boy fell off and hit his head on the pavement.
