When they arrived, police said they found a car partially blocking both westbound lanes, impeding traffic. Inside, they found a one-year-old child in the backseat.
Police said the driver, later identified as Webster Belcer, had fled the scene.
The child was taken to Rochester General Hospital for precautionary reasons and later released.
The next day, Belcer was located and charged with first-degree reckless endangerment, endangering the welfare of a child, as well as numerous traffic violations.
