Randy Miller, 40, of Cathedral City, was later arrested at his home and booked on suspicion of felony hit-and-run.

Authorities said it was unknown whether alcohol or drugs played a role in the collision, which led authorities to shut down Vista Chino between Whitewater Club and Farrell drives until about 10 a.m.
