A Winnipeg driver suspected in a hit-and-run that sent a man to hospital in critical condition on the weekend has turned himself in.

Winnipeg police said Wednesday morning the 37-year-old man showed up at police headquarters to turn himself in.

Police had been searching for a suspect in connection with the hit-and-run crash Sunday after bystanders found a 43-year-old man injured at the intersection of Talbot Avenue and Panet Road around 1:45 a.m. 

Emergency crews rushed the man to hospital in critical condition, where he remained as of Tuesday.

Panet Road was cordoned off for hours on Sunday as police investigated the scene of the crash.

A search ensued for a newer-model Dodge Grand Caravan with damage to the front-end passenger side, and on Wednesday police announced they had made an arrest.

The man has been charged with failing to stop at the scene of an accident involving bodily harm, driving carelessly and driving while disqualified.
