DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A Des Moines man faces charges in connection to a car crash last year that injured a young girl.
Des Moines television station KCCI reports (http://bit.ly/1oKSXd4 ) 22-year-old Omar Jimenez was charged Monday with operating while intoxicated, child endangerment, failure to maintain control and failure to have a valid driver's license. Court records do not list an attorney.
Jimenez was driving a car on Aug. 15, 2013, when it crashed into a pole. He and a 4-year-old girl in the car were injured and taken to a local hospital.
Jimenez is accused of driving at a high speed prior to the crash. An officer also reported a strong smell of alcohol coming from Jimenez's breath. Police say an empty beer bottle was found in the passenger seat.
