Father charged with DUI after accident involving children

Posted: Updated:

JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - A Jackson father is charged with DUI following an accident earlier this month involving his four children.

Forty-five-year-old Don Sayles was driving a pickup truck July 17th when he was involved in an accident at Beasley Road and Glencross Drive. His four children, ages four, six, nine and ten, were in the truck.

Skycopter Three captured the aftermath of the accident. The six and ten year olds were in the back of the truck along with a riding lawn mower. They were ejected and landed on the windshield of a minivan at the intersection. The lawn mower was also thrown from the truck.

Sgt. Joseph Daughtry said the children were treated and released for head injuries, bruises and lacerations. There is no word on whether Sayles will face additional charges.
