A 6-year-old boy was in critical condition Sunday after he was ejected from a vehicle in a crash on Interstate 20 in Arlington, police said.

The boy, whom authorities did not identify, was taken to Cook Children’s Medical Center in Fort Worth with critical injuries.

The wreck, involving two vehicles, occurred about 3:40 a.m. Sunday on the interstate at Bowman Springs Road in west Arlington, police said Sunday.

A 2004 Ford truck was eastbound on the highway when the driver lost control and struck a sport utility vehicle, which rolled, police said. The boy was a passenger in the SUV, police said.

Alcohol was not a factor in the crash, according to police reports.

A subsequent crash involving three to four vehicles that were traveling behind the Ford truck and SUV did involve a drunken driving suspect, police said. No major injuries were reported in that crash, but a motorist was arrested at the scene on suspicion of driving while intoxicated, police said.
