FILICIDE (attempted): Australia: Mother who drove into tree 'tried to kill her children'

Detectives arrested and charged the woman with three counts of attempted murder on Monday after the crash in an outer Adelaide suburb last Friday.
The four occupants of the car sustained minor injuries in the crash, were treated in hospital and have since been discharged.
It is understood the woman had a history of mental health issues, including schizophrenia.
Family contacted yesterday declined to speak to The Australian but expressed their concern over the impact of the case on the children's lives.
In recognition of this, a suppression order was made yesterday in Holden Hill Magistrates Court by magistrate Derek Sprod to protect the identities of the mother and children.
A bail hearing has been scheduled for April 28.
