A 37 year-old Cedar Rapids man was arrested last week after he crashed his SUV with his two young children inside.
The father told police officers that he had been drinking earlier that night, and his blood alcohol content at the scene was registered at 0.152. Police say the man lost control of his vehicle, hit a basketball pole, and then struck a tree. His two children, an 8 year-old girl and a 7 year-old boy, were taken to University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.
His daughter was released after receiving treatment for bleeding in the brain and facial injuries. The young boy is currently still in the hospital in a body cast; he is suffering from a fractured back and a broken leg. The man has been charged with two counts of child endangerment resulting in serious injury and two counts of serious injury by motor vehicle.
