Authorities say a young boy is fighting for his life a day after an ambulance carrying him overturned when it was hit by a drunken driver in North Carolina. One of the men was immediately detained by one of the witnesses of the crash, Newnum said.

Two hours after the crash, Romero submitted to a breathalyzer and registered more than two times the legal limit of alcohol in his system.

Police say the mother was aboard and had minor injuries.

He was allegedly so drunk that he couldn't even sign his name to court documents and wasn't aware that he had hit an ambulance with a small child inside.

No phone listing could be found for the 27-year-old woman aboard the ambulance, whose address was listed in Wise, Virginia.

EMS rushed the baby, the mother and two paramedics inside the ambulance to the hospital. Asked how the family was coping, Oakes said, "It's devastating". He emerged with life-threatening injuries after the ambulance rolled over onto its side. The child was in a stable condition before Romero crashed into the transport, leaving the child critically injured, Winston-Salem Police Lieutenant Rick Newnum told the Winston-Salem Journal.

The ambulance was taking the boy and his mother to a trauma center.

The 27-year-old undocumented immigrant, who was already facing numerous charges of driving while impaired, driving without a license, and failure to decrease speed to avoid an accident, will now also face charges for the child's death. The detainer will allow U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agents to take Romero into custody once he is released from local custody.

Romero is set to make his first appearance in Forsyth District Court Tuesday morning, following by a hearing on April 17.

Romero's passenger, Andres Leon, is being charged with failing to render aid or give information in connection to the crash.
