44-year old Joe F. Hultz later turned himself in at Mexico Public Safety and taken to the Audrain County Jail on charges of C&I driving, resisting arrest, driving while revoked, leaving the scene of an accident, endangering the welfare of a child, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Neither Hultz nor his daughter were injured in the incident.
