A boy remains in critical condition Sunday, a day after he was struck by a driver in a hit-and-run collision in Santa Ana, authorities said.

Police found the boy lying in the northbound lanes of Fairview Street, just south of Civic Center Drive, at about 8:09 a.m. on Saturday, according to the Santa Ana Police Department.
