Officers on Saturday arrested a driver who is accused of striking four cyclists on Point Reyes-Petaluma Road before fleeing the scene, according to the California Highway Patrol Marin office.
A number of tips following the hit-and-run incident earlier in the day led police to a house in Novato, according to the California Highway Patrol. The vehicle in question was spotted, and the driver, 21-year-old Aaron Paff, was taken into custody a short time later. He is facing a charge of felony hit and run causing injury, the CHP said.
The four cyclists were riding in a charity event when they were hit and injured.
Witnesses told officials that a dark blue Dodge Ram pickup truck was traveling westbound on Point Reyes-Petaluma Road when the driver intentionally swerved to the right, striking all four cyclists. According to witnesses, the driver did not stop and quickly fled the scene.
The four men all sustained a number of injuries and were all transported to hospitals. One of the cyclists was flown to the hospital in critical condition.
