A hit-and-run accident early Sunday morning left a pedestrian injured along West College Avenue, the State College Police Department said.
A 21-year-old male driver was traveling westbound along the 500 block of West College Avenue when he struck a 22-year-old male pedestrian, police said. The driver proceeded to flee the scene, police said.
The pedestrian sustained injuries, including a broken ankle and possible bruised ribs, as well as skin abrasions, police said. He was then transported to Mount Nittany Medical Center, police said.
As of Sunday morning, police could not confirm the current status of the pedestrian, but police said he is not in critical condition.
The male was not crossing at a crosswalk, police said.
Police said the driver of the vehicle was later apprehended and was arrested under the suspicion of driving under the influence.
Charges are pending with regard to the investigation, police said.
Police could not confirm whether the pedestrian or the driver of the vehicle are Penn State students.
Since April 26, nine pedestrians have been struck by moving vehicles in State College.
The majority of the accidents have occurred in the downtown area and the drivers are often found at fault in the accidents, though pedestrians are occasionally cited for jaywalking, as previously reported.
