GENEVA — City police arrested a Waterloo man Thursday night after he allegedly ran a red light and hit a man driving a motorcycle, causing serious injury.

Geneva Police Chief Mike Passalacqua said the incident happened shortly after 11 p.m. at the intersection of North and Genesee streets when David J. Peek, 43, of Waterloo, ran a red light on North Street. Peek was driving a minivan.
