Bridgeport police tell the Connecticut Post they responded to a crash on Friday night where they found a vehicle that had gone off the road. The vehicle’s airbags had deployed.

Police say girls ages 3 and 6 were in the rear seat without car seats. The older girl was treated at the scene for bruises.

Their father, 33-year-old Hector Moreno, of Bridgeport, was arrested on charges including driving under the influence and risk of injury to children.

He is free on $25,000 bond.
