EAST HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

A woman is facing charges after police said leading officers on a chase in East Hartford on Tuesday night while her two children were inside of the car.

Police said around 10:30 p.m., a car with two occupants drove into the Hockanum River near the intersection of Preston and Arbutus streets.

The mother, who has 12 outstanding warrants, is now facing several charges including risk of injury to a minor. 

No injuries were reported. 

Police are still investigating the incident.
