A 32-year-old man is in critical condition Sunday after being hit by a suspected drunk driver.
Police spokesman Randy Force said the accident happened around 7 a.m. near 7th Street, south of Thunderbird Road.
Force said a man and his wife went hiking and were walking southbound on the west side of the street when a southbound pickup truck struck the man.
Police said the man suffered serious head injuries and was taken to the hospital where he is listed in critical condition. His wife was not hurt.
The driver of the pickup truck, David Kerhoulas, 25, stayed at the scene until police arrived.
Sgt. Trent Crump said Kerhoulas was found to be impaired. He was booked into the Maricopa County Jail for aggravated assault and endangerment.
