PHOENIX (AP) - A Jan. 13 settlement conference is scheduled for a man involved in a multi-vehicle accident on a Phoenix freeway last year that injured six people including himself.

Joshua Aaron Hicks is charged with 11 counts including aggravated assault, endangerment, possession of dangerous drugs and leaving the scene of an injury accident in the September 2015 crash on Interstate 10.

Phoenix police say the 31-year-old Hicks fled from a traffic stop because he had 15 pounds of illegal drugs that he allegedly planned to sell.

A police officer had pulled Hicks’ vehicle over and asked him to step out after drugs were detected.

Instead, Hicks fled and exited the freeway before running a red light and causing a crash.

He was later arrested after police found him hiding in a shed.
