City police said Monday that they’ve identified the driver involved in a hit-and-run accident on Broadway early Saturday morning that left a Boston man seriously injured.

Brian McDonald, 35, of Ballston Lake, has been charged with leaving the scene of a personal injury accident, police said, but is cooperating with investigating officers. The investigation is continuing.

David Keohane, 27, of Boston, suffered several broken bones after being struck while crossing Broadway near Caroline Street just before 5:17 a.m. Saturday, and was in stable condition at Albany Medical Center, police said.

Police responding to a 911 call found Keohane lying in the road, being tended to by bystanders. He was subsequently treated by the Saratoga Springs Fire Department and transported to Albany by medical helicopter.

Witnesses said Keohane was crossing Broadway when he was struck by a northbound sedan that they said pulled over briefly, and then left the scene. At about 7 a.m., a city public works employee who had been in the general area called the police station to report a gray 2015 Mazda 6 with fresh front end damage was parked on Van Rensselaer Street. That led police to McDonald. The Saratoga County Sheriff’s Department assisted with locating McDonald.
