SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Police Tuesday arrested a man suspected in a hit and run crash that injured a four-year-old child who was abandoned at the scene.

Angelo Fabiani Arroyo was taken into custody in Imperial Beach Tuesday afternoon.

The crash happened just after 8 p.m. Sunday on southbound Interstate 5 near the Rosecrans Street underpass.

According to witnesses, a Nisan Titan rolled down a hillside, hit a palm tree and came to rest on top of a concrete retaining wall.

The child was injured when the driver attempted to free him from a carseat, sending him falling 10 feet onto the sidewalk below.

The toddler was taken to Rady Children's Hospital with severe head trauma. It was not known if Arroyo is the child's father.

Arroyo is facing hit and run and child endangerment charges.
