Nearly three weeks after an adult and five children were injured in a Harlingen crash, police say the 65-year-old driver is being charged for his role in the collision.

Police say after an extensive investigation, Ricardo Cardenas, 65, of McAllen is being charged with “failed to control speed,” according to a news release from the Harlingen Police Department.

The charge comes nearly three weeks after Cardenas is accused of crashing his Nisstan Xterra into a Harlingen home. Police say when they responded to the scene, an adult and five children were found on the ground.

Police reported a day after the crash that three children had been treated and discharged from a hospital, the adult and one child were in stable condition and a 1-year-old boy had been transported to a San Antonio hospital for treatment.
