Lincoln police responded to the 2300 block of E. Joiner Parkway Monday night and found that person had been struck by a vehicle. The driver left before authorities arrived, but investigators were given a good description.

Officers eventually showed up at a home in Rocklin and found the suspect, 21-year-old Maxwell Arreguy. The vehicle used in the incident was also discovered and has been towed.

Arreguy was arrested and has been booked into South Placer Jail. He’s facing felony charges of driving under influence of alcohol and hit-and-run.

The pedestrian’s current condition was not stated.

    Since you did not take the time to find out….

    He was blessed to have two nurses see the accident and rush to his aid to help reduce the bleeding until the ambulance arrived. He was also blessed to not have sustained any brain or spine injuries that are known at this point.

    He did have a large portion of his left side impacted by the car, breaking his leg in four places (femur x2, tibia, fibula), his hip, ankle, two ribs, and some facial bones. He had some internal bleeding and damage to his spleen. He has been on a ventilator since the accident due to the heavy pain medication he has been on. They took him off the full time ventilator on Sunday. He is going into is forth surgery today.
