OXNARD (CBSLA) — A driver has been arrested in a hit-and-run crash that left a 4-year-old girl seriously injured in Oxnard Sunday morning.

The suspected driver, 29-year-old Nelson Ulauc-may of Oxnard, was arrested Sunday afternoon after being identified by a witness, Oxnard police said. He was taken into custody in the 900 block of Mountain View Avenue, where his vehicle was also found.
He was booked on one felony count of hit-and-run and a misdemeanor count of driving with a suspended license.
