COLUMBIA — Columbia police arrested a man Saturday in connection with a hit-and-run accident that resulted in the hospitalization of another driver.

Police responded to an accident report at the intersection of Broadway and Broadfield Drive at 9:18 p.m. Saturday, according to Public Information Officer Latisha Stroer.

Witnesses told police a man had gotten out of one of the involved cars and walked away from the scene of the accident, appearing to be intoxicated.

Officers found the man and escorted him back to his car. The suspect was visibly unsteady, Stroer said.

The other driver, whose name has not been released, was taken to a hospital.

Mark Boudreau, a 34-year-old resident of Columbia, was arrested on suspicion of following too closely, duty to maintain financial responsibility, leaving the scene of an accident and second-degree assault.
