A suspected drunken driver was detained after authorities said he hit a car with a pregnant woman inside and sped away.

The California Highway Patrol said a Honda Accord with two women inside -- one of them pregnant -- was struck by a Chevrolet Camaro on southbound Interstate 805 near 47th Street in National City at about 11 p.m. Wednesday.

An off-duty military police officer saw what happened and spotted the Camaro on the Plaza Boulevard off-ramp.

The military officer detained the driver and his female passenger until CHP officers arrived.

The woman in the Accord were not seriously injured.
