A Tyler woman who collided head-on with a car injuring a woman and two children, has been indicted on two charges of intoxication assault with a vehicle.

Jasmine Gonzalez, 19, was indicted by a Smith County grand jury on March 17 in connection with the wreck that left an 8-year-old in critical condition and injured a 35-year-old woman and 13-year-old child.

She has two bonds of $75,000 each, according to the indictment.

Gonzalez was arrested after the collision on Jan. 13 near the University of Texas Health Science Center at Tyler. Gonzalez was sent to a hospital for treatment and released into officers’ custody.

She was booked into Smith County Jail on two counts of intoxication assault with a vehicle causing serious bodily injury and released the same day, according to jail records.

She was driving southbound on U.S. 271 in a 2005 Mercedes-Benz in the northbound lanes when she hit a 2019 Nissan Sentra, police said.

In the Nissan were the woman and children.
