LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Pleasure Ridge Park volunteer firefighter has been suspended after police say he was involved in a serious car accident, then ran away, leaving at least one of the victims in the other car with serious injuries.
According to a criminal summons, it happened four days before Christmas. Police say three people were traveling in a vehicle on Dixie Highway when 23-year-old Jesse Jones pulled out of a side street and struck their vehicle, "nearly head-on."
The victims' vehicle overturned, trapping one of the passengers in the car, according to police.
After hitting the car, Jones allegedly drove off, leaving them at the scene. Police say he then lost control of his own vehicle, driving through several yards. When his car came to a stop, he allegedly jumped out and ran away.
A witness was able to follow his vehicle and take down the license plate, according to police.
All three victims inside the other car were injured, according to police. The driver suffered cuts to her hands, one of the passengers received two broken ribs and the other passenger was taken to Norton Hospital with serious injuries -- including a concussion and an injury to her esophagus "which could have been fatal if not treated quickly," police say.
On Tuesday, the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office served Jones with a summons, charging him with criminal mischief and attempting to leave the scene of an accident, according to the summons.
The Pleasure Ridge Fire Department immediately suspended Jones after hearing of the charges, and he will face a disciplinary hearing on misconduct charges.
