According to KHOU-TV, Cristal Gonzalez, 26, is facing murder and intoxication assault charges in the Houston wreck, which occurred just before 6 a.m. Saturday on Mykawa Road. Police said Gonzalez's two sons, ages 3 and 8, were in the car when she drove the wrong way and struck a barrier, the news station reported. The younger boy died in the crash, which broke his brother's leg, officials said.
Gonzalez, who suffered critical injuries, vomited pills before she was taken to a nearby hospital, police told KHOU. There, doctors found that her "blood-alcohol level was about three times the legal limit," KTRK reported. She is currently recovering from surgery, officials said.
