An 8 year-old in New York is seriously injured after a man let the child steer the child’s mother’s car while in his lap, which ended in a serious crash. The car hit an embankment and swerved into a tree.
Authorities say that the child suffered a fractured arm and rib, as well as a punctured rib and head injuries. After the crash, the man, Brett Reynolds, 36, left the child crying outside of a home nearby before fleeing the scene. He was arrested the next day at a hospital where he was seeking treatment.
