The accident was captured on surveillance video.

Two men left a store before allegedly getting into the vehicle — a burgundy Oldsmobile — and police circulated that video hoping the public recognized the driver.

Friday evening, the LAPD identified the alleged driver as Javier Saravia.

Officials said Saravia was arrested at his residence and later booked for hit-and-run felony. They also said the car that was allegedly involved in the accident was parked in a car port in the rear of his residence and impounded as evidence.
