Summerside police have arrested the driver of a vehicle who they say left the scene after hitting a pedestrian in the parking lot of the Silver Fox Entertainment Complex.
A police news release issued late Sunday afternoon said a 20-year-old Summerside man was seriously hurt, and is listed in critical condition in a Moncton hospital.
