A driver who struck a 14-year-old boy with a truck in Brentwood on Tuesday afternoon was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol, police said Wednesday.
Officers responded to the intersection of Brentwood Boulevard and Fir Street just before 3:30 p.m. Investigators determined the boy had some kind of medical emergency as he was walking along the shoulder of Brentwood Boulevard and moved into the southbound lane.
Mark Maggiore, 58, was at the wheel of the Ford F-250 that struck the child. He was arrested on suspicion of felony DUI and child endangerment.
The boy was transported to UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland. Police said Wednesday he was listed in stable condition.
