NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

A Lufkin woman who has been on probation for driving drunk with three children in her car in September 2010 is back behind bars after allegedly injuring a passenger while driving drunk in Nacogdoches County.

Mayra Hernandez, 21, is charged with third-degree intoxicated assault with a vehicle.

According to a probable cause affidavit, a Nacogdoches County trooper responded to a two-vehicle accident on US 59 at 6:30 a.m. on Friday.

The trooper determined that Hernandez was the driver and there was alcohol in the vehicle and in her purse. Both Hernandez and her passenger were taken to a Nacogdoches hospital. The passenger had severe swelling on her head, face and body.

The trooper reported Hernandez showed all signs of being intoxicated. She was treated at the hospital and released to the Nacogdoches County Jail, where she is being held on a $100,000 bond.

Hernandez accepted a five-year probation sentence in January 2011 after pleading guilty to DWI with a child following a two-vehicle accident in September 2010.

The accident happened shortly before 11 p.m. on Sept. 10 on College Drive near the intersection of Daniel McCall Drive.

A white Pontiac, driven by Hernandez, collided with a gray Ford.  The driver of the Ford, 77-year-old Paul Crye, of Lufkin, and his passenger, 88-year-old Mildred Stuber were taken to Memorial Health System.  They were treated for minor injuries and released that night.

Hernandez and three children, ages 1,2,3, were taken by ambulance to Woodland Heights Medical Center. They were also treated and released. 

Investigators said Hernandez crossed the centerline and struck the car driven by Crye. The police report also states Hernandez was issued citations for Fail to Maintain Single Lane, No Driver's License, No Insurance, Open Alcohol Container, and three counts of Improperly Restrained Child.
