Police: Driver Flees from Crash, Leaving 9-Year-Old Behind

(KINGSPORT) — A local man is in custody after allegedly fleeing the scene of a crash and leaving a young child behind.

34-year-old Brandon Adams faces felony charges for the June 23 crash. He was arrested Thursday at his Snapps Ferry Rd. home.

Police say Adams crashed into a parked vehicle at Dorothy and Short streets, then ran off. A 9-year-old boy in the back seat was not injured and walked alone back to his apartment a couple blocks away.

The boy tells police that Adams appeared to pass out just before the crash.
