Father ‘left his baby boy bleeding on the ground after DUI rollover crash’
Even the best parents can get into a car accident — there’s no crime in that. But when that accident was caused by drunk driving, and the pitiful excuse for a father left his infant son bleeding on the ground while he ran away, that’s not really an accident, is it?
Investigators say James Hammons was driving drunk with his infant son, Noah, in the car at around 10.30pm when he lost control and flipped over the vehicle at the intersection of East Williams Road and South Williams Road.
Hammons’ 5-month-old son was thrown from the Ford Fusion on impact and landed face down on the road about 20 feet away from the wreckage.
Instead of coming to his baby’s aid, police say Mr Hammons fled before paramedics or law enforcement officials arrived, according to Chron.com.
Eyewitnesses rushed to the site of the crash and found Noah Hammons bleeding from the head on the ground, Your Houston News reported.
… The little boy was airlifted to Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston for treatment. He has since been released and is in foster care.
Authorities say little Noah did not suffer any serious injuries or broken bones, and he is expected to make a full recovery.
The boy’s father was arrested this week after police officers received a tip that led them to a home in Polk County, where Hammons was discovered laying on the couch.
So this loser’s son was bleeding on the ground and he not only ran away, but went home and was chilling on the couch with apparently no concern at all about whether his baby was alive or dead. Could a person sink any lower? Let’s hope he gets locked in jail, and that his guards lose the key.
