An Ontario man has been arrested in connection with a hit-and-run accident in which a 13-year-old boy died in Upland late Monday, according to a media report.

Kyle Bahensky, 21, was booked on suspicion of felony hit-and-run following the 11 p.m. accident at Arrow Highway and Campus Avenue, KTLA-TV reported.

Bahensky's pickup truck was headed south on Campus Avenue when it hit a car carrying a woman and her son, the station said. The collision sent the car into the carport of a vacant house, where the vehicle caught fire. Bahensky's truck hit a light pole, according to the station.

The boy was pronounced dead at the scene. His name was not immediately released.

His mother was taken to a local hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening, the station reported.

Bahensky allegedly ran off and was captured by police several hours later, the station said.
