(Update 12:54 p.m.) Police say they arrested Craig Sheppard in connection with the hit-and-run last night. He was charged with felony hit-and-run and failing to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk.

(Original story 9:30 a.m.) A 47-year-old woman is in the hospital this morning with life-threatening injuries after she was hit by a car last night while walking through the Mission District.

According to police, the woman was walking across 13th and Mission streets at about 5:48 p.m. when the driver of a white truck turned right onto 13th Street and hit the woman.

The driver fled the scene, leaving the critically injured woman on the street.

The woman was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with head and leg trauma.

Police, who alerted cops throughout the city of the hit-and-run, caught up with the suspect -- a 54-year-old black man -- in the Ingleside neighborhood. He was taken into custody later that evening.

Police had no more details at this time.
