At approximately 3:45 a.m., a man allegedly identified as Kevin Garcia was the driver of a 2002 Honda who lost control and veered into opposite traffic lanes hit another motorist head-on.
Immediately following the crash, Garcia exited his vehicle and fled the scene on foot before being located nearby at his residence.
Garcia was booked on suspicion of driving under the influence and taken to jail at Stanislaus County Jail.
Meanwhile, the victim struck by the hit-and-run suspect was moderately injured and transported to the hospital shortly following the crash.
Modesto police officials will be the agency handling the remainder of the investigation.
