Hayward police detained the driver they believe hit a San Francisco boy last night and then sped off.

Lieutenant Troy Dangerfield told SF Weekly this morning that at about 1 a.m. police pulled over a driver in a white truck that matched the description of the large white Toyota pickup that had hit a 9-year-old boy last night. Witnesses identified the driver as the one responsible for the hit-and-run.

“I'm pretty sure he will be arrested,” Dangerfield said. “But he's in a different jurisdiction right now.”
