New York State Police arrested a Youngstown man for crashing, and allegedly leaving the scene with his children.

Troopers say 31-year-old Christopher W. Sims was traveling eastbound on Cain Road when he crossed into the oncoming lane, went off the road, hit a rock, and snapped a utility pole in half. 

According to police, Sims caused substantial damage to his car, and left the scene with his children. A computer check of his driver's license confirmed he was revoked.

The children, ages five and eight, were taken to Mt. St. Mary's Hospital for further evaluation but were later released, troopers say.

Sims faces two counts of Endangering the Welfare of a Child, Leaving the Scene of an Injury Accident 1st, Aggravated Unlicensed Operation 2nd, Reckless Driving, Unlicensed Operator, Moved from Lane Unsafely and Failed to Keep Right.
