Ashton Vincent Craven looks very surprised in his mugshot, and maybe it's because he has learned of what he's done.

Craven, 38, was diving drunk when he ran a stop sign at Bataan and Rutland a little after 1 Saturday afternoon, cops say.

His Taurus struck a Corolla driven by a woman who was five months pregnant.

"The female was transported to Memorial Hermann Hospital and doctors later determined she lost her baby due to the accident," HPD says.

Craven was treated for injuries at Ben Taub General Hospital before being taken to jail. He faces felony DWI charges.
