SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A hit-and-run driver accused of intentionally running down a man in City Heights has turned himself in.

The arrest came overnight, after a brutal incident behind homes on 48th Street.

Authorities say a man was walking through the alley, when a speeding SUV hit him and kept going.

The victim was dragged nearly 100-feet before the driver stopped, pulled him away from the car, then took off again.

The man was taken to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries. No word on his condition.

The driver remains in custody.
