SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — A seven months' pregnant Raton woman prematurely gave birth to a baby boy after a wrong-way accident involving three vehicles on Interstate 25 near Santa Fe.
Santa Fe County sheriff's Lt. Joe McLaughlin said 29-year-old Tarra Tull wasn't seriously hurt in Monday night's accident and that the infant's prognosis was good. Two other people were treated and released.
University of New Mexico Hospital in Albuquerque did not immediately respond Wednesday to a request for a condition update on Tull's new baby.
Deputies say 26-year-old Leela Perez of Santa Fe drove south in I-25's southbound lanes. She's charged with great bodily harm by vehicle. Laughlin said Perez told deputies she drank alcohol before driving.
Perez attorney Dan Cron says his client will plead not guilty but is sorry about what happened.
