NATIONAL CITY, Calif. – A pregnant teenager was injured after the car she was riding in was hit by a suspected drunk driver late Wednesday night.

A man driving a Chevy Camaro reportedly struck the vehicle around 11 p.m. on Interstate 805.

The driver of the Camaro didn’t stop after crashing into the car, but was forced to pull over about a half-mile down the road because his damaged car wouldn’t go any further, authorities said.

California Highway Patrol arrested the driver and charged him with DUI.

The teenager was transported to Scripps Chula Vista hospital to be evaluated. The extent of her injuries is not known.
