A man has been arrested in a hit-and-run that left a pedestrian with serious injuries, officials said.

Police responded to the scene of the crash at 1:24 a.m. on Monday on Jersey Avenue in New Brunswick. The pedestrian, a 25-year-old man, was rushed to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office said in a news release.

The vehicle involved had already fled the area when officers arrived, authorities said.

Abel Bustos-Medel, 31, of New Brunswick, was identified as the suspect later on Monday and arrested, the office said. He has been charged with assault by auto, leaving the scene of an accident involving serious bodily injury and a DUI, authorities said.

Police spotted him driving his sedan on Livingston Avenue in New Brunswick. The car matched the one suspected to have been involved in the incident and it had damage consistent with a pedestrian crash, prosecutors said.
