BOISE -- Police say a 20-year-old Boise driver had been drinking before he crashed into a car carrying a pregnant woman and fled on foot.

Joey A. Willard was jailed early Tuesday on felony charges of leaving the scene of a crash and driving under the influence.

Officers were called late Monday to a Boise intersection, where witnesses reported a van had ran a red light before crashing into a car. Police say the driver of the van, later identified as Willard, parked his vehicle before running away.

The driver of the other car, and his pregnant passenger, were treated for non-life threatening injuries. Police say officers later found Willard outside of a convenience store and he failed sobriety tests before being placed under arrest.
