An alleged drunk driver hit five pedestrians at 19th and Mission streets, then collided with another vehicle minutes later, police say.

Around 1:45 a.m. on Sunday, police discovered five victims who had been struck by a car while they crossed a Mission Street crosswalk at 19th Street. Four of the five were hospitalized and are expected to survive, while the fifth refused medical services, according to police.

While officers were on the scene of the hit-and-run, they were notified at 1:57 a.m. of a two-car collision just two blocks away, at 19th and South Van Ness. Both drivers had remained on scene, and police identified Calderon Vargas as the suspect in the earlier hit-and-run. He was booked in San Francisco county jail on three charges: failure to stop at a red light, fleeing the scene of a collision, and of driving under the influence of alcohol causing injury. He remains in custody.
