CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Police were shocked after finding a woman allegedly driving intoxicated with her two-year old son in the vehicle on Tuesday morning.

Officers said it was just after 8 a.m. when witnesses followed 22-year old Julie Cantu's truck, after it was involved in an accident near Saratoga and Staples. Swerving in and out of lanes, Cantu struck construction signs and eventually struck another car that was stopped on Weber and Saratoga.

When police arrived, Cantu didn't appear to be injured, but they found her two-year old in the backseat of her truck.

Family members picked up the child, and Cantu was arrested for driving while intoxicated with a child passenger.
