CORPUS CHRISTI – Police were called to a convenience store for a minor crash incident that turned into an arrest of a mom of two.

Police say a woman crashed her SUV into a beer delivery truck while she had her two children inside.

The crash happened behind of a convenience store near South Staples and Yorktown Boulevard just before 1:30 pm Tuesday afternoon.

Police say a mother and her two children, a five and a seven-year-old child, were traveling from New Braunfels and stopped at the convenience store.
