AUSTIN (KXAN) - A soccer player at the University of Texas at Austin was listed in critical condition after being hit by a car at Eighth and San Jacinto streets early Friday.
Kylie Doniak, 22, was taken to University Medical Center Brackenridge. The man she was walking with has minor injuries to his leg.
Witnesses said Nicholas Colunga, 22, ran a red light and hit Doniak, who was crossing at the intersection of San Jacinto and Eighth Street. Colunga was chased down by Sisto Perez, a contractor, who managed to detain him until police arived.
Perez was riding his motorcycle when he saw the accident. He chased Colunga down and wrestled him to the ground near Rio Grande Street, when he reportedly tried to ditch his vehicle and run.
Robyn Crawley witnessed the accident and said Colunga was walking with a friend when the car hit her in the crosswalk.
"The driver just plowed through the light, hit her and kept going on down and didn't stop, no brake check -- nothing."
It happened shortly before 2 a.m. when the bars were closing downtown.
Police arrested Colunga and charged him with intoxication assault and failure to stop and render aid.
All roadways in Downtown Austin have reopened since the accident.
Doniak is a senior midfielder who is a 2009 first term Academic All-Big 12. She was also made third-team NCSAA All-Central Region.
Last season, she finished second on the squad in scoring 13 points with five goals and three assists.
