SANTA ANA – Police arrested a woman on suspicion of driving under the influence after a 10-year-old boy was hit in a crosswalk, leaving him with life-threatening injuries.

Suray Leon, 33, was driving west on East 17th Street near Cabrillo Park Drive about 6:45 p.m. Sunday when she ran a red light, said Sgt. Mel Sarabia of the Santa Ana Police Department.
