FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A father has been charged with driving drunk and causing a crash that killed his 7-year-old son and critically injured the boy’s 5-year-old brother in Fargo.

Charges filed in Cass County District Court allege Christopher Devine had a blood alcohol level more than three times the legal limit when he collided with another vehicle last Saturday night.

The 31-year-old father is charged with criminal vehicular homicide and two counts of criminal vehicular injury. Devine and another passenger in his vehicle were also injured. People in the other vehicle were not seriously hurt.


Jason Devine died several days after the crash. Court documents say Branden Devine remains hospitalized in critical condition.

Authorities say the father told police he had been drinking before the crash, but has no memory of it. Court records do not list an attorney for him.
