ELBE, Wash. – A Washington man has been arrested and a woman has been hospitalized after police say the couple was having sex with an infant in the backseat, before crashing into a tree.

Police say 23-year-old Michael Tonkin was driving drunk while having sex with his passenger, 23-year-old Daisy Laroque, when he missed a curve and struck a tree Wednesday night.

When a Washington State Patrol Trooper arrived at the scene, Tonkin and Laroque were naked and the 3-month-old baby was still in the backseat, according to officials.

The newborn was not injured in the crash.

Laroque, who was not wearing a seatbelt, suffered a broken pelvis, according to the New York Post. Police said the mother was drunk as well. There is no word if she will face any charges.

Tonkin has been charged with suspicion of driving under the influence, vehicular assault and child endangerment. He suffered a broken wrist in the crash.

Police say Tonkin has three DUI convictions on his record.
