A father is in jail Monday after crashing his car while drag-racing on a busy Indianapolis street, critically injuring his 2-year-old son. Valentin Duran, 25, was arrested after being treated at the hospital Saturday and faces numerous charges, including child neglect and reckless driving. His son, who was in the passenger seat without a car seat or seat belt, was taken to Riley Hospital for Children in critical condition. Duran was racing a black Mustang on Georgetown Road about 5:30 p.m. when he crashed into another vehicle. The driver of the other vehicle was not injured. Police are still looking for the black Mustang.
