HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) - Police are trying to figure out why a Roosvelt, Long Island man sped away from police in Hempstead, and then jumped out of his car to run - leaving his 2-year-old son in the backseat. Police say the motorist, who was not identified, did not have a record and didn't have any alcohol or drugs on him. The chase began in Hempstead around 6 p.m. Tuesday when a Hempstead police officer tried to pull over the car for a traffic violation. Police say the 27-year-old motorist sped off, but was stopped a short distance away when he had an accident. However, police say the suspect then jumped out of the car and ran, leaving his 2-year-old son in a child protective seat in the back. The boy was not injured. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I wonder when they will find out the reason why the father fled? I couldn't think of any reason why.. can you?

Who can say why? The man may have been wanted in another state, or perhaps he felt guilty for something he did, even though it wasn't illegal. There could be any number of reasons. It seems to me though that you don't run from the police unless you did something wrong.

What can make a man to run from the police, ofcourse one will quickly say cos of traffic violation the driver felt that the best thing to do was to speed off. Anyways it can also be more than that guess if not for the fact the he ended up crashing the car how knows. The police might not are caught up with him. But for speeding off, crashing and leaving a two year old son in the car, I sure don't think that guy is ok.
