BATH, Ohio — A woman driving with her three children was arrested for OVI after she crashed on Christmas Eve.

Officers responded to the one car accident on West Bath Road around 6:45 p.m.

According to the Bath Police Department, Lisa Teter, 43, said she slid off of the road because of slippery conditions.

Ofc. Mike Gabel said he was the first officer at the scene.
