A Florida woman is accused of crashing her car into four people and six motor homes while driving under the influence on the infield of the Daytona International Speedway early Saturday morning, according to the Daytona Beach Police Department. Abbie Kinney, 43, told an officer on the scene she "shouldn’t have been driving" because she drank three beers prior to getting behind the wheel of her black Toyota pickup truck around 2 a.m., according to an arrest report. One of the people injured in the crash broke his leg, another had a bandaged hand and a third reported back pain, according to FOX 35.
