A Palm Desert man who hit a pedestrian with his pickup truck in La Quinta, then fled the scene of the non-fatal collision, pleaded guilty to felony hit-and-run causing injury Thursday and received three years probation.
Bernal fled in his 2002 Toyota pickup truck, but was arrested later that day in Palm Desert and booked on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs causing injury and felony hit-and-run. However, prosecutors did not charge Bernal with any DUI counts.
