An Omaha man was arrested in connection with a hit-and-run accident that injured two girls, police said Thursday.
Manuel M. Rodriguez, 27, turned himself in Monday night, said Sgt. Joe Collins. He has been charged with leaving a personal injury accident.
The accident occurred about 7 p.m. Sunday near 39th and L Streets.
Camilla Avalos, 5, and Samantha Avalos, 10, were hospitalized following the crash, which involved two pickup trucks. They were passengers in a pickup driven by Jose Gildardo Avalos, 48, of Omaha.
Avalos' 2012 Chevrolet Silverado was eastbound on L Street when it was struck by a westbound pickup that had lost control and veered into eastbound lanes.
Witnesses said the white Ford F-350 that struck the Silverado raced from the scene.
