Man wanted for leaving 2 stepdaughters behind in Haines City rollover crash

HAINES CITY, Fla. -- Police don't expect to issue a "parent of the year" award to a man accused of running off, leaving his stepdaughters behind, after a rollover crash.

Armando De Dios Cruz violated the right-of-way of another driver Sunday, Jan. 21, according to the Haines City Police Department. He crashed the SUV, causing it to roll over.

His 6-year-old stepdaughter was ejected from the SUV, police say, while his 13-year-old stepdaughter was left inside. 

Police allege Cruz ran off and didn't bother checking on either child. The driver of the other car reported a broken wrist.

A warrant has been issued for Cruz' arrest on charges of leaving the scene of a crash with injury and child neglect. He did not have a valid driver's license, according to police.
