Police said a canine team found Sean Goodwin, 30, of 371 Orchid Dr., hiding in a nearby house he had broken into after fleeing the scene of the crash on foot just before 3 p.m. near the intersection of Mastic Road and Patchogue Avenue.
A 51-year-old woman driving the car Goodwin hit suffered serious, but non-life-threatening, injuries, police said. Her condition was not known Thursday.
He then fled, police said.
After a search by a K-9 team, the Aviation Section and Emergency Services Unit officers, Goodwin was found at a home on Patchogue Avenue, police said.
Goodwin was charged with leaving the scene of an accident with serious physical injuries, first-degree reckless endangerment, second-degree burglary, resisting arrest and operating a vehicle with a suspended license. He is scheduled for arraignment Thursday in First District Court in Central Islip, police said.
