An Oxon Hill man was charged with driving under the influence Tuesday night after he hit a 5-year-old boy and fled the scene.

At around 6:45 p.m., an Oxon Hill boy stepped out from between two cars and was allegedly struck by Randy Adolphas Thomas in the 1300 block of Southview Drive in Oxon Hill. The boy was taken to an area hospital and is in critical condition, Pfc. Henry Tippett of the Prince George's County police said.

Thomas, 55, was arrested not far from the scene, Tippett said. No other information was available.
