Editor's Note: News On 6 was initially told the driver's name was Heidi Sain; however, we have learned that the correct spelling is Heidi Fain.

Broken Arrow Police say a 47-year-old woman is in jail after crashing a car filled with six juvenile passengers Thursday night. 

Heidi Fain is being held on complaints of driving under the influence and six counts of child endangerment.

The single-vehicle rollover took place at about 10:45 p.m. on 61st Street at 197th East Avenue. Police say Fain was driving a Honda Pilot westbound on 61st Street when it left the roadway, struck a tree then rolled several times.

Three juveniles were taken to the hospital with injuries including one in critical condition, according to Sergeant Ed Ferguson with the Broken Arrow Police Department.  

The three juveniles who were injured were not wearing seat belts, police say.

Three other juveniles in the car did not receive significant injuries, according to police.

Ferguson said the wreck took place on a narrow rural road with poor lighting.

"We do believe we have alcohol impairment on the part of the driver," he said.

"At this point we're trying to contact the parents of all these kids to try to make sure we can get them returned home safely," he said Thursday night.
