PEORIA, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -- A driver is facing felony charges after crashing his vehicle in Peoria and leaving behind his passenger, his adult son, injured at the scene on Tuesday. It all started around 10:45 a.m. at the intersection of 83rd Avenue and Union Hills Drive.
Court documents say 54-year-old Frank Loomis, a Phoenix resident, was driving his vehicle with his adult son riding passenger when he ran a red light, causing an accident. Both Loomis and his son reportedly suffered injuries from the collision. Despite this, Loomis allegedly ran from the scene, leaving his hurt son behind. His son was taken to the hospital by ambulance.
Authorities eventually found Loomis behind a restaurant located near the intersection of 83rd Avenue and Union Hills Drive. After being taken into custody and read his rights, Loomis revealed that his right ankle had a monitor on it because awaiting a pre-trial on Mar 13 for aggravated assault. Official paperwork says he "ran on foot after accident to avoid being arrested for a warrant."
Loomis, who court documents say doesn't have a valid Arizona driver's license, reportedly has an outstanding misdemeanor warrant from Peoria Police for criminal trespassing. After refusing medical treatment for his injuries from the crash, Loomis was arrested and booked into Maricopa County 4th Avenue Jail. He faces a felony charge for failing to stay at an accident involving injuries. His first day in court will be Mar. 16.
