(Scroll down for video) A mother was injured and her two daughter's died when a teenager who was speeding, smashed into their home.

Police in Clinton County, Indiana, said that the 17-year-old female driver seemed to be under the influence of drugs when she was arrested.

A blood test was taken to confirm if she was high on opiates at the time.

Alia Sierra, who had three passengers in her car, was driving at about 80 miles per hour in a 55 mph zone.

She lost control, flew over a hill and went airborne. The car then crashed into the family's living room.

9-year-old Callie Fullerton and her sister, 17-year-old Haleigh, were in the living room watching television when the car came crashing through the wall.

Both girls were pinned underneath the vehicle and died instantly. Their mother, 37-year-old Bridget, was injured from falling debris. Their brother, who was in a bedroom, was not hurt. Their father was not home at the time.

Sierra was arrested on charges of criminal recklessness resulting in death. She could face more charges of operating a vehicle while intoxicated if the tests confirm that she was high on opiates.

After all evidence are collected, prosecutors will determine if the teen will be tried as an adult.

The passengers in the car, who are between 12 and 17 years old, were treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
