Lexington Police said four people were injured, including two children, following two separate collisions before a driver crashed her car into her own front porch.

Police said around 9:30 a.m. Monday, Rachel Baynham, 21, of Lexington, was driving a 2001 Ford Taurus when she collided with an SUV on Jackson Street.

Police said Baynham then raced toward East Loudon and Idlewild Court where investigators said she ran a stop sign and collided with a pickup driven by James White of Richmond.

Police said Baynham's car continued on and eventually slammed into the front porch of her own home on Loudon Avenue.  The porch suffered extensive damage. 

Police said Baynham, her female passenger in the front seat and two children in the back seat were all injured and taken to the hospital.

Police said White, the pickup driver, suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Investigators said everyone in the Taurus was wearing a seat belt.

Police said break failure may have been a contributing factor in the collisions, which are still under investigation.

Police said Baynham was charged with three counts of Wanton Endangerment 1st Degree and Leaving the Scene of an Accident.  Investigators said more charges are pending against Baynham.

Police also said Baynham's passenger suffered serious injuries.  Her name was not released.
