    Police said 38-year-old Christopher Bynum admitted to taking PCP and voluntarily submitted to a blood test at Parkland Hospital following a crash on Sunday.

    Dallas police say a driver that admitted to being on PCP faces intoxication manslaughter and assault charges after he collided with a family's car, killing a child and injuring three others.

    Police said 38-year-old Christopher Bynum admitted to taking PCP and voluntarily submitted to a blood test at Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas following the crash on Sunday.

    According to police, Bynum was driving a Dodge Charger westbound on Ledbetter Drive between RL Thornton and Marvin D. Love Freeway at a high rate of speed. The car collided with a Dodge Neon that had a family of four inside.

    One of the children died from injuries sustained in the crash. The child's mother was critically injured while the father and another child were seriously injured. All remain hospitalized following the crash.

    Investigators said they found PCP and marijuana in Bynum's vehicle during the crash investigation.

    Bynum has been charged with three counts of intoxication assault for the family's injuries, one count of intoxication manslaughter for the child who was killed and possession of a controlled substance for drugs found in his vehicle.

    He is currently being held in the Dallas County Jail on those charges.
