Miami-Dade police arrested a man Thursday in connection with the hit-and-run crash that left a teen seriously injured in West Little River on Wednesday night.
Police say Alan Alvarez, 48, was driving a stolen 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe on Northwest 103rd Street when he veered onto the sidewalk on the 2800 block and hit 17-year-old Juan Fernandez, knocking him from his bicycle.
Alvarez fled and abandoned the car less than a mile away.
Fernandez was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital, where he remained in serious condition Thursday night.

Charges against Alvarez were pending.
