LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man was arrested in Florida on Monday morning on several charges in connection with a crash that hurt three kids at Williams Harrison Park in the Taylor Berry neighborhood.

William Osborne fled to Indiana and then to Fort Myers, Florida, after being indicted on charges of wanton endangerment, criminal mischief, assault and DUI. 

On Jan. 20, LMPD said Osborne was driving his Ford pickup truck northbound on Oleanda Court when he lost control for unknown reasons, hitting three children and playground equipment. Following the wreck, Osborne was taken to the hospital in critical condition, and LMPD hasn't explained how he was able to get to Florida.

In response to the crash, Metro Council members Mary Woolridge, Marianne Butler, and David James are hosting a neighborhood meeting about safety in the park at 7 p.m. Feb. 6 at the South Louisville Community Center. 

Osborne will remain in Florida until he's extradited back to Louisville.
