Police have arrested a driver after a serious hit-and-run crash Thursday evening near the Metrocenter mall in Phoenix.

The suspect drove onto the sidewalk and hit a woman near Dunlap and 29th avenues, according to Phoenix police Sgt. Vince Lewis. She was transported to a nearby hospital in extremely critical condition.

The driver left the scene but was later taken into custody, Lewis said. Impairment was possibly a factor.
