MADERIA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Deputies say a 41-year-old man crashed his SUV into a telephone pole and left a 7-year-old passenger alone in the median before crashing into two more cars stopped at a red light.

Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies say the first crash happened around 10 p.m. Wednesday. A witness saw an air bag hit the little girl and approached the vehicle to help, but the man drove away.

A short time later, he stopped the car and left the child left alone in the median. Another witness called 911. The vehicle then hit two vehicles stopped at a traffic light, injuring both drivers.

The man tried kicking out the cruiser window after his arrest. He faces multiple charges, including DUI, driving with a suspended or revoked license and child abuse.
