WALNUT HILLS (FOX19) -

Charges are pending against the father who crashed his car and fled, leaving his critically hurt 10-year-old son behind, Cincinnati police said.

Adriel Holloway, 27, will be charged at a minimum with aggravated vehicular assault and operating a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, said Lt. Brian Norris, commander of the Cincinnati Police Traffic Unit.

Holloway remains in fair condition at University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

It's not clear yet if he will be charged upon hospital release and taken to the Hamilton County jail, or if he will be released and charged at a later date once the prosecutor's office advises police, Norris said.

"I"m waiting to hear from the prosecutor's office," he said Wednesday.

Excessive speed and impairment are factors in Tuesday's crash that left his son, Ariyonte Holloway, clinging to life, police have said.

Adriel Holloway's gold Ford Fusion ran off Lincoln Avenue at East Martin Luther King Drive and slammed into a tree.

The boy was sitting in the front seat and was not strapped into the car with a seatbelt. His air bag also did not deploy.

His father fled the scene of the crash, leaving him behind, police said.

Bystanders ran to help the child. Fortunately, that included Dr.Jay Johannigman, an internationally renowned trauma surgeon who works in the emergency room at University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

The boy was taken to Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center.
