When troopers responded, the adults attempted to flee on the quad. The 1 1/2-year-old boy was ejected from the quad when the adults struck a small ditch.

The boy was taken to a Pittsburgh hospital via medical helicopter as a precaution with a head injury.

Police said the man involved, 24-year-old Eric Ritenour, is the child’s father. It’s unclear if the woman, 25-year-old Krystal Hall, is the child’s mother.

According to state police, Ritenour and Hall were arrested and charged with endangering the welfare of a child, fleeing and eluding police, DUI and several other summary charges.
