A 26-year-old mother faces charges of drunken driving and child abuse after she wrecked her vehicle in Pojoaque with her 1-year-old daughter as a passenger.
Authorities alternately identified the woman as Elizabeth Trevizo and Elizabeth Trezino in court and jail records.
Trevizo of Alcalde told a sheriff’s deputy that she had two shots of Captain Morgan rum 45 minutes before she began driving, according to the deputy’s report.
The deputy also said he found a partially empty Bud Light in the backseat of the vehicle.
The sheriff’s report says that, shortly before 5 p.m., Trevizo’s vehicle was traveling west on N.M. 503 when it swerved off the right side of the road and struck a speed-limit sign. Trevizo overcorrected and the vehicle veered into the eastbound lanes before hitting a fence on the shoulder of the roadway, near Calle Don Bernardo, the deputy stated in his report.
A breath-alcohol test showed that Trevizo had a 0.08 blood-alcohol level. That is the point where a driver is presumed to be intoxicated under state law.
Trevizo was not injured, according to the report. Her daughter had some redness on her lower belly, “indicating that she was not properly buckled into her car seat,” the report says.
Trevizo was being held in the Santa Fe County jail in lieu of a $2,500 bond, court records show.
