A 28 year old woman was arrested last night for intoxication assault after causing an accident that severely injured her 5 year old son.
Police arrested Rebecca Velma Benavides. They say she drifted into oncoming traffic on Ayers. A truck had to swerve out of the way, but the woman still sideswiped the dually.
The impact spun her car around. Police say the woman's 5 year old son who was in the back seat suffered a severe laceration on his forehead.
He was taken to Driscoll Children's Hospital with a possible life threatening injury.
No word on the child's condition tonight.
