A Memphis man was arrested Sunday after he caused a crash that killed a teenage boy while allegedly driving drunk.

WREG reported Quincy Johnson was charged with driving under the influence and reckless driving after the crash at 3 a.m.

An investigation revealed Johnson was driving northbound when he suddenly crossed all three lanes of southbound traffic, crashing into a car carrying four people.

All four passengers were injured, but one male, who was 14 years old, had to airlifted to a nearby hospital in critical condition.

He later died from his injuries.  His identity was not immediately released.

Johnson is currently being held on $50,000 bond.
