SHEBOYGAN, Wisc. -- A Sheboygan dad was arrested for OWI after his two toddlers fell out of his van and were seriously injured.

Police said it happened Tuesday just before 7:30 p.m. near 8th Street and Indiana Avenue. 

A witness told police the two children fell out of the van as it went through an intersection. Officers were eventually able to identify the children who were one and two years of age.

A short time later police located their father -- who said he was not aware they had fallen out of the van.

He was then arrested for OWI and Child Neglect.

One child was treated and released from a local hospital. The other child was transported to a Milwaukee area hospital for serious but non-life threatening injuries.
