The driver sought in a hit-run-collision that seriously injured a woman and child on Freeport Boulevard has turned himself in to police.

The man, in his 20s, came forward and was being arrested Wednesday evening on suspicion of felony hit-and-run, according to a Police Department Twitter post. His name has not been released.

Sgt. Vance Chandler, Sacramento police spokesman, said officers were called to the area of Freeport Boulevard, just north of Fruitridge Road, at 3:24 p.m. He said two pedestrians, an older woman and a boy, were struck by a vehicle, which left the scene.

The Sacramento Fire Department reported in a Twitter post that the woman and child were transported to UC Davis Medical Center with serious injuries.

Freeport Boulevard was closed in both directions between Virginia and Murrietta ways for about four hours. Police reported about 7:20 p.m. that southbound Freeport had reopened to traffic and the northbound lanes were expected to be open soon.
