A woman charged after a frontal accident, her son seriously injured | News, Sports, Jobs



OGDEN — A Clearfield woman was charged Wednesday with allegations stemming from a head-on crash that seriously injured her 7-year-old son.

The Weber County District Attorney’s Office charged Alex Abeyta, 27, in 2nd District Court with negligent operation of a vehicle resulting in grievous bodily harm, a third degree felony and disorderly conduct misdemeanor vs.

Charging documents say Ogden police responded to a collision on Monday afternoon in the 500 block of 32nd Street where a Honda Civic had crossed the center line and collided with another vehicle.

Police and paramedics helped Abeyta out of the Honda, with an officer saying in the arrest affidavit that Abeyta had bloodshot, dilated eyes and slurred speech. The affidavit said Abeyta’s son was sitting in the back seat, unbuckled, and suffered serious injuries, including three broken backs.

No occupants of the other vehicle were hospitalized and there were no serious injuries, Ogden Police Department spokesman Lt. William Farr said by text message Wednesday afternoon.

While in hospital, police said, Abeyta continuously shouted, disturbing emergency room patients, and continued after being warned she would be charged with disorderly conduct.

Abeyta was held without bond in Weber County Jail.
