A teenage driver under the influence of alcohol crashed his car into another vehicle, injuring a child and his mother.

During the May 24 incident, 18-year-old Kevin Lozano crashed a black Nissan Maxima into another car while drunk driving on Highway 6 near Pavilion Point in southwest Harris County in Houston.

According to the deputies, Lozano’s vehicle was southbound on the left turn lane when he failed to yield the right of way and slammed into a black Honda Accord that was heading the opposite direction on Sunday night.

A 7-year-old boy and his 26-year-old mother were there in the car with Lozano. The boy seated in the back seat was not wearing his seatbelt. He suffered facial and basal skull fractures.

Lozano and the woman on the passenger side suffered a broken leg. Both the mother and child were flown to Memorial Hermann Hospital. The child was reported to be in critical condition.

The 21-year-old driver of the other vehicle had a broken right arm and a 20-year-old passenger suffered a broken leg. Both were taken to the hospital.

According to Sean Teare, with the Harris County District Attorney’s office, Lozano had consumed more than two times the legal limit of alcohol.

“We’re going to charge every single person we can in this chain,” Teare told local media. “This isn’t acceptable. This is the kind of thing that I’ve been talking about and our concern as we started to open up…We’re talking about a 7-year-old who may not make it to tomorrow,” he added.

During his arraignment on Tuesday, prosecutors said a witness saw Lozano fleeing the scene. The witness then tracked Lozano down and brought him back to the scene.

Lozano admitted to drinking before the accident and was charged with four counts of intoxication assault and four counts of failure to stop and render aid. If the child fails to survive, one of the assault charges, considering the child’s age, could be upgraded to felony murder. An $80,000 bond was set on him.

According to Teare, the police will investigate the child’s mother to see if Child Protective Services needs to get involved.
