(Newser) – Police say a 25-year-old Georgia woman is in jail after trying—and failing—to prove the existence of God to her children, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Bahari Warren was driving with her two children—ages 5 and 7—Wednesday in Norcross when she crossed into oncoming traffic and drove straight into a telephone pole. Police say Warran later admitted that she crashed the car on purpose to prove to her children that God was real and would protect them.

"Her eyes (were) closed and she was saying, ‘Blah, blah, blah, I love God,’” one child told police. “She didn’t want us to just have a car accident. She wanted us to know that God is real.” Police say Warren told her children to buckle their seat belts before the crash. Warren is facing two counts of child cruelty, and her children are currently with their grandparents. (Read more child cruelty stories.)
