ALBANY, Ga. -

Authorities say a 6-year-old girl was critically injured when her father who was driving drunk crashed into a semi-truck.

Georgia State Patrol officials say the girl was taken to the Medical Center of Georgia in Macon with head injuries after the crash Thursday night. Officials say they had to use the jaws of life to remove them from the car.

Shawn Urquhart, of the Georgia State Patrol, says the girl's father first said someone ran him off the road and forced him to change lanes. The driver of the semi-truck said he was stopped at an intersection told investigators there were no cars near the man at the time of the crash.

The man was charged with DUI, child endangerment, failure to maintain lane and child restraint violation.
