San Jose police arrested a suspect in a hit-and-run collision that critically injured a pedestrian early Sunday next to San Jose State University, a police spokeswoman said.
Solomon Friese, 22, was arrested and booked into the Santa Clara County Main Jail on suspicion of felony hit-and-run resulting in serious injury, according to police Sgt. Heather Randol.
The crash occurred at 12:59 a.m. Sunday in the 100 block of South 10th Street beside the far northeast end of the college campus, Randol said.
The suspect was driving southbound on South 10th Street when he struck and injured a pedestrian who was walking across the street, Randol said.
The motorist then drove from the scene, crashed into a parked car on South Eighth Street at East San Salvador Street in the southeast section of the campus, fled from the vehicle and entered his apartment, according to police.
When police arrived, the suspect came out of his apartment and contacted the officers, who arrested him, Randol said.
The pedestrian was taken to a hospital in critical condition with life-threatening injuries, she said.
