A 23-year-old man faces a DUI charge after he crashed his vehicle into a light pole with his baby strapped to his chest, authorities in Arizona said.
A witness told police they saw the driver “lose control and hit a telephone pole” when officers responded to the wreck around 7:25 p.m. March 9, Phoenix police said in a probable cause statement.
The witness told police that when they got to the vehicle, they saw a 4-month-old baby strapped to the driver’s chest in a baby carrier, the statement said.
The witness helped the man push the vehicle out of the road, and the driver then took his daughter to a restaurant nearby and gave her to a family member, police said.
The child was taken to a hospital with a fractured skull, police said.
Police conducted a field sobriety test on the man, who was arrested on multiple charges, including DUI, aggravated DUI with a passenger under 15, reckless driving and child abuse.
