    In two separate incidents Sunday, two mothers were accused of driving under the influence with a child in the car.

    The first was reported at 2:32 p.m. on University Avenue near 58th Street in the El Cerrito neighborhood of San Diego.

    San Diego police say a 25-year-old woman was driving eastbound on University when her Ford Mustang crossed into oncoming traffic, jumped a curb and collided with a tree. Officers found the driver’s 5-year-old girl sitting in the front seat of the car with minor injuries.

    The child was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the collision, police said.

    The driver sustained serious injuries. Mother and child were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment, police said.

    Officials said it’s believed the mother was driving under the influence.

    Then, hours later in Chula Vista, police arrested a woman for driving under the influence following a traffic collision at 4th Avenue and G Street.

    The mother and her toddler were traveling on G Street when the woman ran a red light, striking a car traveling southbound on 4th Avenue, Chula Vista police said

    A couple in the other car suffered minor injuries, police said.

    The child was turned over to relatives while her mother was arrested for DUI.
