Witnesses told police Calicia Williams, 36, was driving at a high rate of speed before she crashed. Police said Williams told the children to take off their seat belts and stretch out their hands, then stated, “The devil can’t hurt you. He only hurts bad people. You have the light of Jesus in you, and only Jesus can cure us.”

Police said when they asked Williams how the crash happened, she said her husband put a hex on her and caused her to crash. Police said Williams was rambling about spells and voodoo.

The children were hospitalized in Gainesville, but their conditions are unknown.

Williams will be taken to the Marion County Jail upon medical release.

Police said they have requested Williams should be held without bail.
