MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) - -

A 13-year-old boy has died from his injuries after a traffic accident early Sunday morning on Hacks Cross.

The Shelby County Sheriff's office say, just after 1:00 am, deputies responded to a two vehicle accident on Hacks Cross north of Meadow Vale. 

The investigation shows, Quincy Johnson was driving a Dodge Durango northbound on Hacks Cross, when he blacked out and crossed over the line, hitting a Ford Tempo with four passengers inside.

Two adults in the Ford Tempo, a 13-year-old male and an 18-month old baby were taken to the hospital.

The two adults and the baby had non-life threatening injuries.  The teenage boy died of his injuries at the Med Sunday afternoon.

Johnson was hurt and was not wearing a seatbelt.  Deputies also say Johnson appeared to be intoxicated and was given a breathalyzer on the scene which showed he had been drinking. 

At this time, he is charged with DUI and reckless driving, but additional charges could be added.
