SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WXYZ) - A 33-year-old Southfield man is facing drunk driving and child endangerment charges following an early morning crash with his son in the car.
Police say King Sollie was using the turnaround lane to go from northbound Telegraph to the southbound side of the road when he failed to stop at a flashing red light, hitting a GMC SUV.
The force of the crash caused the SUV that was traveling south on Telegraph to rollover. No injuries were reported in connection with the crash.
Police say Sollie's 10-year-old son, who was also in his in the car at the time of the crash, was turned over to a relative.
Sollie was taken to jail after failing several field sobriety tests at the scene and registering more than .08 with a preliminary breath test.
Sollie has been charged with operating a vehicle under the influence, child endangerment and driving with a suspended license. He has been arraigned and bond was set at $10,000.
State records show Sollie has a long history of suspensions on his driving record.
