Hayward man arrested in hit-and-run spree charged 

The Hayward man arrested early Monday in connection with multiple hit-and-run incidents in San Francisco on Sunday has been charged by the District Attorney's Office, according to Assistant District Attorney Alex Bastian.

Edwin Delatorre, 26, faces four felony counts of hit-and-run, one felony count of reckless driving causing great bodily injury and three misdemeanor counts of hit-and-run after reportedly ramming into the Parc 55 Hotel, striking a Muni bus and hitting two pedestrians, one of which was critically injured.

Delatorre is currently out of custody after posting $115,300 bail, according to the Sheriff's Department.

He is expected back in court on Friday at 1:30 p.m. for arraignment, Bastian said.

Delatorre's alleged demolition spree began about 8:30 p.m. Sunday near Mason and Eddy streets when the red Ford Mustang he was reportedly driving struck a parked car, rammed into the Parc 55 Hotel, then struck a Muni bus, causing the bus to collide with a building, according to police.

He then is alleged to have driven toward Fifth and Market streets where he reportedly ran a red light before striking a pedestrian, causing life-threatening injuries.

Delatorre is alleged to have struck another pedestrian around Market and Kearny streets before abandoning his vehicle at Pine and Kearny streets. Police traced the vehicle's registration to Delatorre, which led to his arrest at his Hayward home Monday.
