A motorist accused of running over a pregnant woman and her baby admitted to drinking 30 beers before climbing into his car and accelerating through a parking lot, Phoenix police said.

The driver, later identified as Guadalupe Castaneda, also struck a parked vehicle and injured its occupant, police said. 

Officers, with assistance from the police helicopter, followed the fleeing suspect until he stopped at 3300 W. Van Buren St.

Castaneda was eventually taken into custody.

He was booked into jail on a number of charges, including DUI and assault.
