DUI suspect arrested after hit-and-run accident

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A suspected drunk driver is in custody Wednesday morning after a hit-and-run accident that seriously injured one woman.

Police say a meat delivery truck rear-ended a Prius, launching it several feet down the road, around 11:00 p.m. Tuesday in the 4300 block of Sports Arena Boulevard.

Witnesses say the truck driver then jumped out of the vehicle and ran away.

Investigators recognized the truck as the same one linked to a man who was reported missing earlier that night.

They tracked the suspect to a gas station and arrested him. He now faces DUI and hit-and-run charges.

The woman in the Prius was taken to the hospital. As of this report, there is no word on her condition.
