Investigators say a man was driving down Fairbanks-North Houston near Emmott last night when his cell phone rang. He lost control of the SUV as he reached for the phone.

Police say the driver overcorrected, crashed into a curb and then a tree. The man's ten and eight-year-old boys, buckled in the backseat, were hurt, one of them critically.

The father was not seriously hurt. Police are still investigating the wreck.
