2 Paramedics, Baby Hurt in Houston Ambulance Wreck

HOUSTON Houston police have arrested a suspected drunken driver after his SUV allegedly ran a red light, hit an ambulance and knocked the emergency vehicle on its side.

Houston police say the wreck early Tuesday left two paramedics who were in the ambulance and a baby boy in the SUV with minor injuries. The ambulance was returning to the station at the time of the wreck and was not hauling any patients.

Investigators say the SUV driver faces a felony DWI charge. Police are trying to determine his relationship to the injured youngster.

Further details weren't immediately available.
