He crashed into trees near Highway 67 and Highway D in the town of Ottawa at about 1:30 a.m.
Both Froemming and his son were trapped inside.
The boy was flown by Flight for Life to Children’s Hospital, where he remains, but doctors were unable to save his arm.

WEST MIFFLIN (KDKA) — The superintendent for the West Mifflin School District will stand trial on DUI charges.
West Mifflin School superintendent Daniel Castagna showed up in Beaver County Court on Friday to face charges of driving under the influence, speeding and careless driving.
In September, Castagna was stopped on Interstate 376 in Beaver County after his car was seen weaving and straddling the lane. State police say he had slurred speech, blood-shot eyes and smelled of alcohol.
State police say Castagna’s .15 alcohol blood level was nearly twice the legal limit.
“His reputation is suffering, obviously, with the nature of the allegations with the school district, but again, I can’t comment to that,” defense attorney Steven Valsamidis said.
The West Mifflin School District would only say that it’s taking the charges seriously. The law requires that Castagna receive due process, and this is considered a personnel matter. However, this is Castagna’s second DUI offense. Nine years ago, he went through the ARD program; it allows first-time offenders who go through the program to get the charges dismissed and their record expunged.
“This is a second offense DUI. Statutorily, he is eligible for ARD again in light of the circumstances of the first ARD. A little known fact a lot of people don’t realize, you can get ARD a second time for a second DUI,” Valsamidis said.
Castagna was released on his own recognizance and is due back in court on Jan. 30.

A Des Moines police officer was charged late last week after he was pulled over for driving with a blood-alcohol level nearly twice the legal limit, authorities said.
Brett Vanderpool, a probationary officer with the force, was arrested early Friday morning in Ankeny after he was pulled over on suspicion of driving while drunk, Sgt. Paul Parizek said. Vanderpool has been placed on administrative leave while Des Moines police conduct an internal investigation, he said.
Parizek said police officials were surprised by Vanderpool’s arrest, calling him an exceptional officer who had a lapse in judgment. He was hired as a probationary officer in January and was set to become a full-time officer Jan. 3.
Following the department’s internal investigation, Vanderpool could be suspended or terminated. Parizek said the officer was arrested with a blood alcohol concentration of .145; the legal limit in Iowa is .08.
“Everyone makes mistakes … but we set our standards high at this organization,” Parizek said. “Bottom line is, we’re not supposed to get arrested.”
Vanderpool is out on bond. He could not be reached for comment Monday morning
