Five additional passengers were treated at a hospital for non-life-threatening injuries. A 10-year-old and 4-year-old remain hospitalized.

Police said the SUV driver and his front-seat passenger were arrested after fleeing the scene on foot. They remain lodged in the Kent County Jail, pending charges.

Police said alcohol may have been a factor.
