US Man, Kid, Car crash

Missoula : In a shocking incident, a man told investigators that he left a 5-month-old baby boy in the woods after a car crash because the baby was very heavy. Francis Carlton Crowley, 32, was scheduled to appear in court in Missoula on charges of assault on a minor and criminal endangerment.

Officers later learnt that he and the baby had been in a crash earlier that day. Crowley was disoriented due to his drug use and unable to help officers to find the baby or say how long ago the crash had occurred, charging documents said.

Later after a massive search, officers found the baby cold and hungry under a pile of debris and sticks, several hours after the crash. The nature of Crowley's relationship to the baby was not immediately clear. Crowley, who acknowledged of using drugs was jailed later.
