    A two-month-old baby was found at the scene of a car accident Monday with two adults who appeared to be under the influence, according to Miami police.

    Lt. Freddie Cruz said the child's mother was outside of the car when Miami Fire Rescue arrived at the scene of the crash on Northwest 20th Street and 12th Avenue around noon. The baby was also out of the car but still strapped in a car seat.

    A man in the driver's seat was unconscious, police said.

    Cruz said the man and the child's mother appeared to be under the influence of possibly drugs or alcohol.

    There were no injuries. Both adults were transported to the hospital in stable condition.

    The two-month-old was taken to a Miami fire station. The child's father did not want to talk to the media when he arrived at the fire station. 

    The baby's godfather was also at the fire station. He told NBC 6 the baby's name is Elizabeth Ashantay. 

    It was previously reported that the child was handed over to her biological father. Police later revealed she will remain in the custody of the Florida Department of Children and Families. A dependency hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.

    Detectives said the child's mother and the man could face charges if it is revealed there were under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the crash.
