The driver was found and taken into custody. Officers identified him as Lamont Boone, 26, of Columbia. EMS transported Boone to a local hospital after he complained of pain and fainting. Medical staff said he had no injuries, according to the news release.

Officers transported Boone to the Boone County Jail. He was arrested for possession of a stolen firearm, unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon, first degree endangering the welfare of a child, resisting arrest and operating a motor vehicle without a driver's license.
