John Taylor French was arrested by Garden City officers and charged with Reckless Driving in a hit and run accident that occurred last Saturday evening.
French, 19, of Meridian, allegedly struck and injured Alan Beavers, 24, as he crossed Chinden Boulevard in a crosswalk at Garret Street.
Detectives compared registration data available through the Idaho Department of Motor Vehicle registrations to that of the vehicle described by witnesses. 230 vehicles matched the description of a 90's model, dark colored Toyota 4 Runner.
The leads provided by pulling registration information led detectives to French's residence in Meridian Tuesday evening.
Physical evidence was recovered at the residence that authorities say links French's SUV to the collision scene.
