Child Injured, Man Charged in Dallas, TX, DWI Accident on Scyene Road
Dallas, TX -- May 11, 2019, a child sustained injuries and a man faces charges following an accident involving multiple vehicles.
At around 8:00 p.m., Dallas PD officials responded to the Pleasant Grove area off Scyene Road and North Masters Drive.
According to initial reports, 42-year-old Toby Evans was driving a vehicle along the road in a Mercury sedan. He apparently attempted to pass multiple vehicles when the car hit a Toyota car and a Dodge SUV. This caused a chain reaction where the Toyota hit another car, in turn sending that car into a fifth.
Emergency services responded to the scene where they found a 7-year-old girl in the Toyota with serious injuries. She was taken to Children's Medical Center for treatment. Evans was taken to a local hospital with unspecified injuries.
Police allege that Evans was under the influence of drugs when the crash occurred. He currently faces a charge for intoxication assault.
