    Three children were injured when the car they were riding in was struck from behind by a stolen vehicle driven by a man under the influence of "multiple drugs" in Pleasant Grove late Saturday night, Dallas police say.

    According to a police news release, patrol officers saw the man driving the wrong way in the northbound lanes of the 300 block of North Masters Drive at about 11:10 p.m. When officers tried to stop the man, he crossed over the median and began speeding down the southbound lanes, police said.

    Minutes later, the vehicle crashed into the back of a car driven by a 17-year-old girl. Three children — a 9-month-old, a 2-year-old and a 14-year-old — were unrestrained in the back seat, police said. The driver also crashed into a vehicle driven by a 31-year-old man.

    Police said the vehicle used in the chase was reported stolen in an aggravated robbery 10 days earlier. The driver was arrested on three counts of intoxication assault and a charge of evading arrest. A toxicology screening showed he was on multiple drugs at the time, according to a police news release.
