An Arizona foster dad is facing charges after allegedly running from the scene of a crash with two children in his care.
Phoenix police said Quentin Price first denied being involved in the crash in the 2400 block of East McDowell Road on Tuesday night.
Price later admitted to taking his 1-year-old and 5-year-old children out of the car following the crash and running away because he did not want to get arrested, according to the report. There was a misdemeanor warrant for Price's arrest.
His girlfriend, his 15-year-old daughter and 1-month-old child remained at the scene.
Price said he got into a stranger's car who took them to his apartment after he told the driver that he had warrants and needed to get away.
Police said Price's girlfriend was seriously hurt in the crash and is not able to care for the child.
Police said only the 1-month-old child was in a car seat, and it was not properly restrained.
Price was arrested on two counts of child abuse and one count of giving a false report to police.
