A Hayward man was arrested early Monday morning in connection with several hit-and-run incidents in San Francisco on Sunday, one of which left a pedestrian in critical condition at the hospital, police Officer Gordon Shyy said.

The incident began near Mason and Eddy streets about 8:30 p.m. when the suspect vehicle, a red Ford Mustang, struck a parked car, the Parc 55 Hotel, and a Muni bus, forcing the bus into a collision with a building.

Employees at the hotel said they could not comment on the case.

The vehicle then drove toward Fifth and Market streets and reportedly ran a red light before striking a pedestrian, who was taken to the hospital with injuries considered to be life threatening, Shyy said.

The Mustang continued on to Market and Kearny streets and struck a second pedestrian before the driver abandoned the vehicle at Pine and Kearny streets and fled the scene on foot. That pedestrian's injuries were not considered to be life threatening.

Investigators arrested Edwin Delatorre, 26, in Hayward early Monday morning. He was booked on two counts of felony hit-and-run, two misdemeanor counts of hit-and-run, reckless driving, speeding and running a red light.
