A drunk driver on a Houston freeway overpass has been arrested after he slammed into a 12-year-old autistic boy on the freeway, killing him instantly. The mentally challenged boy somehow slipped away from his parents while biking. The father of the young boy says that they were on a bike ride when they were separated around 5:30 p.m. The family immediately reported that their son was missing and called the police. Before they were able to locate their son, the family got a call about his passing.

The child was hit by the drunk driver when he wandered onto the northbound lanes of the S. Post Oak at Main. The individual was hit by a black pickup truck and died on the scene. The police believe that the driver of the truck had an illegal BAC. He was arrested at the scene of the accident. The driver was charged with a DWI, but reports show that he may not be considered at fault in the death because the boy was walking in a moving lane of traffic.
