A man is in custody after a Monday morning hit-and-run crash in the east valley.
About 3:40 a.m. a Chevrolet SUV ran a red light at the intersection of Stewart Avenue and North Christy Lane and crashed into a Toyota sedan, Metropolitan Police Lt. David Gordon said.
The driver of the Chevrolet fled the scene on foot and was arrested shortly after, Gordon said. The driver and passenger of the Toyota were taken to University Medical Center as their injuries “appeared to be serious,” Metro spokeswoman Laura Meltzer said.
Meltzer did not have any further updates on their conditions.
Gordon said the intersection was shut down while police investigate. It has since reopened.
