Second arrest in Scarborough hit and run

Derek DeSousa

Police have arrested the alleged driver in a hit and run that seriously injured two women and a toddler.

It was back in October, the three were crossing the road near Ellesmere and Pharmacy, when they were hit by an SUV.

At the time, police say the two people inside got out, but then took off.

They found the Dodge Journey abandoned near St. Clair and O'Connor the next day.

Police say 34-year-old Derek DeSousa is now in custody.

The alleged passenger was arrested last week.
