A Rochester man is in the Monroe County Jail after state police say he left a one-year-old child in his car after he crashed it.

Troopers say Webster Belcer crashed his car on the Inner Loop near Joseph Avenue on Friday night. When police got there, they found the child in the back seat and the driver – who police say was Belcer – was already gone.

The child was taken to Rochester General Hospital as a precaution and has since been released.

Belcer is charged with reckless endangerment and endangering the welfare of a child.
