(Newser) – Investigators still don't know how or why a pregnant woman drove her car straight into the ocean in Daytona Beach, Fla., yesterday with her kids inside. The mother and her three children, ages 10, nine, and three, were driving on the beach in a place where cars are allowed on the sand. Investigators haven't been able to figure out exactly what happened before the SUV crashed into the water, but someone who helped in the rescue told WESH one of the kids said their mom was trying to kill them. But the station also notes she could have had a medical emergency at the wheel, causing her to lose control. A tourist from Canada caught the entire rescue on camera. Newsy reports:
