Troopers said the man arrested was driving a gray vehicle that struck another vehicle.  His name was not released.

A female passenger in the grey vehicle grabbed the infant from the backseat of the gray vehicle and ran from the scene.

“The female that took off running actually took the child with her,” Aller said.

Troopers located the female and infant a short time later and both were taken to the hospital with injuries not believed to be life threatening, investigators said.

The two adults in the other vehicle that was hit also were taken to the hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
