WHITE PINE, Tenn. (WATE) — A 23-year-old DUI suspect is facing several charges including aggravated child abuse stemming from a late-night vehicle crash after which he’s accused of leaving his infant son on the sidewalk wearing only a diaper.

A White Pine Police Department incident report indicates the responding officer was called to the scene around 12:55 a.m. Monday along Main Street at Maple Street near downtown White Pine for an infant found on the sidewalk, wearing only a diaper. When the officer arrived, he found a suspect identified as Juan Cervantes, lying on his back, unresponsive, in the middle of the roadway about 300 yards from the infant.

The suspect’s vehicle, a 2012 Chevrolet Equinox, was found by officers crashed on the railroad tracks. A report says a passing motorist had stopped after hearing an infant crying and found the infant facedown on the sidewalk. The temperature outside was 34°F, according to the police.

The suspect and the infant required medical care; the infant was taken to East Tennessee Children’s Hospital for treatment of head and neck injuries. Investigators said they discovered the suspect was the infant’s father. The suspect’s girlfriend identified him.

Police were able to obtain surveillance video from a nearby business, that showed the suspect running down the street from the crash scene with the infant in a diaper, putting the infant on the sidewalk. The defendant’s driver’s license was suspended in Tennessee and there was not a valid car seat in the crashed SUV.

Cervantes is facing the following charges from the incident: Aggravated Child Abuse, Child Safety Restraint System, Driving Under the Influence, Driving on a Suspended/Revoked License, Leaving the Scene of an Accident with injury.
