On the morning of May 29, 2008 at approximately 10:45 am, there was a motor vehicle crash that involved 4 children under the age of 6.

Upon being discovered during the commission of the crime by the victim, he fled the scene in a vehicle operated by his sister at a high rate of speed. The children, and the aunt of two of the children, were transported to the Children’s Hospital for treatment of injuries sustained during the crash.

The mini-van drove off at a high rate of speed for a short distance before hitting a boulder along the side of the roadway and flipped the van over onto its roof. When the police arrived the arrestee was outside of the van and was helping the rest of the occupants out by climbing thru the window.
