The children were in the back seat, fasted into regular seat belts, according to reports, but were not secured in child seats.

Demitri Gomez was taken to Methodist Dallas Medical Center, where he is listed in serious but stable condition, according to reports. Police say alcohol is believed to be a factor in the crash and Demitri Gomez will be charged with three counts of intoxication manslaughter, pending toxicology results.
