SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KTXL) — A Sacramento man was recovering from a broken back and other serious injuries Friday after the California Highway Patrol said he was run over by a suspected drunken driver who had his toddler in the car.
According to CHP investigators, the 62-year-old pedestrian was hit at the Marconi Avenue exit off eastbound Interstate-80 after Brian Evans-Kitchen had already allegedly slammed his Lexus into a Ford van and a Toyota Camry.
Officers told FOX40 Evans-Kitchen fled the scene around 10:35 p.m. Thursday with his 3-year-old son in the car.
Early Friday morning, thanks to a 911 hang-up call, the CHP was able to track him down at home and arrest him on suspicion of felony driving under the influence, felony hit-and-run and misdemeanor child endangerment.
The 34-year-old is now free on $50,000 bail.
