Authorities say 6-year-old twin boys who weren’t wearing seatbelts have died in a South Carolina wreck and their mother is charged with driving under the influence.

The Highway Patrol said the head-on crash happened around 10 p.m. Sunday on state Highway 183 west of Pickens.

Troopers say Jennifer Knox struck a Kia head on while trying to pass a vehicle towing a boat in her BMW.

Troopers say Knox was taken by helicopter to the hospital. She faces two counts of felony DUI resulting in death, child endangerment and other charges.
