Nine-year-old Boy Leaving Giants Game Injured by Hit-and-Run Driver

Posted on August 8, 2011

While walking back with his family to their hotel in San Francisco after a Giants game Friday, a nine-year-old boy was hit by a driver who left the scene.  The victim, Ryan White, was visiting from Philadelphia and had just watched the Phillies beat the Giants. Ryan was in the crosswalk around 10:40 p.m. when he, and his aunt, were struck by a 2004 Toyota Tundra pickup that had been traveling the wrong way on New Montgomery, a one-way street, before turning onto Mission where the accident occurred.

The driver of the pickup, Andrew Alan Vargas, is alleged to have been driving drunk, and was arrested near his home on charges of felony hit-and-run and driving under the influence.

As reported in the San Francisco Chronicle, Ryan is in critical condition in San Francisco General Hospital. His aunt’s injury was not life threatening.

The news story reports that Ryan’s father said a car had screeched out of the street before it hit one car, then careened over into a second car, before hitting his son. The driver fled after hitting many parked and moving cars, which brought the police chief to examine the scene.

A passenger, who was in the pickup, stated he was texting and didn’t see the accident happen, but felt it. He said he and the driver both panicked, which is why they ran away.
