Posted: Updated:

Wichita Police arrested the father who was injured in a rollover crash in northeast Wichita that killed his young son.

Investigators arrested 24-year-old Daniel Juarez-Lopez for involuntary manslaughter and driving while under the influence Friday. The accident happened in August of last year near East 21st Street and Rock Road just after 11 p.m. Investigators say the jeep Juarez-Lopez was driving was westbound when it crossed the center line, over-corrected, and struck a curb. Officers say the vehicle rolled several times, ejecting the driver and his six-year-old son Daniel. The boy died at the scene and Juarez-Lopez was taken to a nearby hospital.

Juarez-Lopez is booked in the Sedgwick County Jail. His bond is set for $50,000.00.
