A man suspected of driving drunk with three children in his car crashed into a tree last night in Kansas City, critically injuring a 6-year-old child.
The wreck occurred about 10:15 p.m. at N.W. 85th Terrace and N. Wyandotte Street. Police said the driver lost control of a sport-utility vehicle containing another adult and three children, ages 4, 6 and 7. The 6-year-old was knocked unconscious, police said.
All three children were taken to area hospitals. Police arrested the driver because they believed he was intoxicated.
