A 20-year-old Houston woman was arrested and charged with two counts of intoxication manslaughter following a car crash that killed a woman and her newborn baby.

Houston media outlet KTRK reports that Veronica Rivas, 20, slammed her SUV into the back of a car being driven by Shayla Joseph, 36.

The crash killed Joseph and her 3-month-old son Braylan Jabari Joseph.

Joseph's husband said he believed his wife was out getting breakfast for the family.

Rivas is set to appear in court on Thursday, according to KTRK.
