Alleged drunk driver charged after child dies in crash in Grand Prairie

A man who police said was driving drunk when he caused a crash in Grand Prairie that killed a child has been charged with intoxication manslaughter.

Police said 31-year-old Detoderick Gaston was involved in a minor accident on Interstate 30 around 11:30 p.m. Sunday but didn't pull over. 

His wrecked car later stopped in the eastbound lane of I-30 near the Belt Line Road exit. That's when police said a father with two children in the car rear-ended Gaston.

One child was killed, and the other child and the father were seriously injured.

Gaston is now charged with one count of intoxication manslaughter and two counts of intoxication assault.
