A woman is in critical condition after losing control of her car while driving eastbound on State Route 299 on Tuesday.

Kelli Kler, 23, of Lewiston, was driving with two young children in a Geo Metro on the state route when she looked back to give one of the children a pacifier.

While she looked away, she accidentally turned off the road toward the Trinity River.

When Fire and Rescue arrived on the scene, they found Kler outside of the car unable to move. Both of the young children were in child seats in the back seat of the car. Kler was flown to Mercy Medical Center and the children were transported to the hospital by ambulance as a precautionary measure.

Mercy Medical Center staff said that Kler was in critical condition as of Tuesday evening.
