Victoria police are investigating a woman who was found unconscious behind the wheel with her child in the back seat of the car.

Just before 9 p.m. on Thursday officers were called to the 100-block of Gorge Road East after a passerby noted the driver of a stopped vehicle appeared to be unconscious with a young child in the car.

When officers arrived on scene, they broke the passenger side window to rescue the child and woman, who may have been impaired by drugs and alcohol.

The woman was taken into custody and the child has since been released with no injuries.

The Integrated Road Safety Unit are currently investigating.
