PLAIN CITY, Ohio (AP) - A central Ohio father was jailed after State Highway Patrol troopers say he drove away without talking to authorities about running over his 4-year-old son who had fallen out of their van.
Union County jail records said 30-year-old Natividad de Jesus Hernandez of Columbus has been charged with failure to exchange information after an accident - a third-degree felony.
Trooper Jeremy Allen said a hearing for Hernandez Friday morning was postponed because of a language barrier. No attorney information for him was available.
The patrol said 4-year-old Angel Gustbabo Hernandez fell out the van his father was driving Thursday morning near a construction site in Union County, northwest of Columbus. Troopers say the boy was run over by the vehicle and taken to a hospital, where he died.(Copyright 2013 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
