DWI suspect crashes car with child inside


ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) –  A woman is in jail tonight after police say she was driving under the influence while her child was inside the car.

According to a criminal complaint, 30 year old Jennifer Correa was near Montgomery and I-25 when she smashed into a street sign crushing the front of her car.

The complaint states that when officers arrived they smelled alcohol on her and then discovered Correa’s 5 year old son inside the car.

After failing a series of sobriety tests, she was booked and taken to jail. Today a judge raised her bond because she had a history of DWI and for having her child in the car.

She faces a number of charges including child endangerment.
