HOUSTON -

Houston police said a man may have been drunk when he ran a red light and slammed into an ambulance overnight injuring the two paramedics and an infant.

Crash scene investigators said the suspect ran the red light in his Suburban at Cook and Bellaire after midnight, and had a 6-month-old baby inside the SUV at the time.

"Two of the paramedics were transported with minor injuries, the other vehicle had a male occupant driving and a six-month-old baby. The baby was taken to Southwest Memorial for minor injuries," said Sgt. S. Sorge with the Houston Police Department.

The ambulance was not responding to a call and was headed back to the station at the time of the crash.

It took rescue crews a while to pull the paramedics out of the flipped truck.

The suspect was arrested at the scene and faces felony DWI charges.

At this point it's unclear if the infant is the son of the man arrested overnight.

The baby and the two paramedics are expected to make full recoveries.
