Angelina Ann Pena

An Abilene woman is accused of driving 80 mph while drunk and on meth with her 3-year-old daughter not strapped in a car seat.

Angelina Ann Pena, 23, is charged with driving while intoxicated with a child passenger and injury to a child.

Shortly after 2 a.m. Thursday, Pena called 911 to report she had been involved in a crash in the 2400 block of North 14th Street.

When emergency crews arrived, they found Pena holding her three-year-old daughter who was bleeding from the head.

Police say Pena's speech was slurred, her eyes were bloodshot, she was unsteady on her feet and her breath smelled like alcohol.

Pena told police she had drank alcohol and taken methamphetamine before driving.

Pena said that the crash occurred after she sped down a residential street at 80 mph with her daughter unrestrained because "she did not care what happened."

Pena's daughter suffered a serious head injury as a result of the crash.

She is being held on $35,000 bond.
