Alleged drunk driver charged in hit-and-run of young Phillies fan 

Andrew Alan Vargas of Hayward was charged by the District Attorney’s Office on Monday with two counts of felony drunken driving and one count of felony hit-and-run in connection with an incident last week that left a 9-year-old Pennsylvania boy with serious injuries.

Vargas, 21, is accused of striking the boy as he crossed the street at Mission and New Montgomery streets following the Giants-Phillies game Thursday night. A woman also was struck during the incident, according to the District Attorney’s Office. 

“The conduct alleged in this case is egregious,” District Attorney George Gascón said. “Driving is a privilege that carries a great deal of responsibility.”

Vargas is expected to be arraigned this afternoon in San Francisco Superior Court. The boy remained hospitalized as of Sunday.
