Police said infant car seats prevented two children – a 2-years-old girl and 8-month-old boy – from suffering serious injuries after the car they were in overturned.

Page was the driver of the car, according to police. Investigators said his blood alcohol level was over three times the legal limit.

They also found Page was driving 96 miles per hour in a 55 mph zone seconds before the crash.

Another passenger in the car, 32-year-old Jessica Rodgers of Grand Blanc, was seriously injured.
