New video of mother driving children into ocean

DAYTONA BEACH (FOX 13) -

New video has surfaced of the woman accused of intentionally driving her van into the Atlantic Ocean with her three children inside.

The video shows the van driven by Ebony Wilkerson and head right across the beach. At first, Wilkerson is driving parallel to the water. She then makes a sudden sharp turn and heads straight for the ocean.

In the video you can see her keep driving into the water. About two minutes later, several rescue vehicles are seen racing across the beach.

Bystanders helped pull Wilkerson and her three children out of the car that was quickly filling with water. Those kids are 3, 9, and 10 years old.

Wilkerson was in court Monday for a custody hearing regarding those children. However, the judge issued a gag order to prevent anyone from talking about what happened at that hearing.

Meanwhile, a new police report was also released. It says the first thing Wilkerson told officers is that she was allegedly abused by her husband.

She remains in jail on $1.2 million bail.
