(KSEE) California Highway Patrol officers are searching for a drunk driving suspect who left his injured children at the scene of a rollover crash.
“You don’t ever think a father of his children would leave his children there injured,” CHP Officer Omar Godinez said.
The car crashed into an empty field near rows of houses near Madera.
Officers suspect 31-year-old Rafael Cortez was drinking and driving, finding several bottles of beer in the car, some already empty.
The CHP said they’re working around the clock to find Cortez. They said family members are not cooperating with trying to find him.
“We do know he has strong ties out of the country. We are just afraid he will be a flight risk and not be here any longer,” Godinez said.
