An illegal drag race on an Ark-La-Tex street ended when a car flipped-over with three small children inside.

Shreveport Police say at least three cars began racing in the 4600 block of Lakeshore Drive just after 8-o'clock Sunday evening.

Police say a woman driving one of the cars slammed on her brakes to slow down when she saw a police car coming up the street.

Her car flipped over and hit a tree.

Somehow neither she, nor the three small children inside the car, suffered any injuries.

Police say the woman now faces a host of charges including reckless driving, having no driver's license and not having the children properly restrained.
