Crash survivors to stay with uncle

Currently the Florida Department of Children and Families were taking custody of three surviving children of a fatal car crash. That is until Wednesday when a judge recommended that the children, ages 10, 11 and 16, be placed with their uncle. Before the decision cane be made official the DCF must first conduct a home study to make sure the family can adequately take care for the three children.
This situation came about when the children were riding in a car with their mother on Saturday when it crashed, killing their 14-year-old sister, Daquasha Johnson. Authorities say 32 year old Melissa Shonvette Johnson is accused of driving under the influence of alcohol and possibly drugs. Judge Anthony Johnson said Johnson’s blood alcohol level was more than three times the legal limit. She is currently recovering in an Orlando area hospital.
